The classic rock world has a number of big films set for release this summer, and the latest to release a trailer is the Bruce Springsteen-inspired film Blinded By The Light.
The film tells the story of Javed, a British teen of Pakistani descent, growing up in England in 1987 amidst racial and economic turmoil. Javed is passionate about poetry and then his passion is turned upside down when a classmate introduces him to the music of The Boss.
Blinded By The Light is based on Sarfraz Manzoor’s memoir Greetings from Bury Park and comes from writer/director/producer Gurinder Chadha, best known for 2002’s Bend It Like Beckham.
Blinded By The Light hits theaters on August 14.
