Film screening: My Beautiful Laundrette
My Beautiful Laundrette at Little Reliance Cinema
Stephen Frears' delightfully transgressive love story My Beautiful Laundrette is also a work of social realism that dared to address racism, homophobia and socio-political marginalization in Thatcher’s England. A young Pakistani man (Gordon Warnecke) opens an upscale laundromat in South London with his childhood friend, a skinhead (Daniel Day-Lewis). 30 years after its original release, this culture-clash comedy taken from an Oscar nominated original script by Hanif Kureishi has lost none of its subversive energy.
