Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham) directs Viveik Kalra as Javed, a British teen of Pakistani descent living in a working-class town in 1987 during difficult racial and economic times. Javed turns to poetry to make sense of his life, but then a classmate introduces him to Bruce Springsteen’s music, which seems to offer parallels to his life and shows Javed another outlet for his pent-up dreams. 

Like much of The Boss’s music, Blinded by the Light is a life-affirming rock anthem. Sure, it hits a lot of familiar notes, and it’s a bit cheesy, but you’ll cheer its conclusion and love the ride along the way. Its message of inclusion is also the message we need. (118 min.)

—Glen Starkey




Weekly Poll
What do you think about Guadalupe's major housing plans, which include 800 planned homes?

Good. The area needs as many new houses as possible.
It's a good idea if commercial developments like big box stores don't follow.
There should be more, but 800 houses is too many.
Bad idea. That many homes will skyrocket the city's population.
