  • 4 Lessons from the Feel-Good Film Blinded by the Light
    Javed is a teenage boy of Pakistani descent living in 1980s Great Britain. He has big dreams of being a writer. His traditionally-minded father, though, wants Javed to chase a more well-paying career, because, well, “writing isn’t a job.” Javed’s life grows even bleaker when his dad loses his position at General Motors, forcing Javed to abandon his aspirations and find any type of work that will help feed the family. Add that to the frequent racism Javed encounters, and his future seems hopeless. “We were born in the wrong time, in the wrong town, in the wrong family,” he tells his sister. But then a friend introduces Javed to the music of Bruce Springsteen. And then Javed’s outlook on life grows more positive. And then he learns the Boss himself will be playing near his city. Can the music of a rock singer from New Jersey inspire a British-Pakistani boy in Luton, England? Maybe. The feel-good film Blinded by the Light (PG-13) opened this weekend, starring Viveik Kalra as Javed and Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter in the Marvel films) as his teacher. It was inspired by a true story and features everything children of the 80s will love: new wave hairstyles, wild-looking cloths and Rubik’s Cubes. And, of course, the music of Bruce Springsteen. Here are four lessons from the film: Photo courtesy: Warner Bros.

    Want even more consensus?

    Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
