If YOU loved Bohemian Rhapsody, you will most likely also love Blinded by the Light. It’s a relatively small budget film but the vision of being in high school in a London suburb in the 80’s is intoxicating. The fashion (everything from Bananarama oversize jackets to skinheads) the hairstyles (from big and frizzy to Flock of Seagulls wings) – THIS is a beautifully imagined lower middle class teen “musical/drama” of the period. It’s based on a true story and addresses the cultural and political issues of the day, while maintaining a joyous musical story. You will walk out of this movie HAPPY – don’t miss it!
