First it was the Beatles in Yesterday; here it’s Bruce Springsteen. This feel-good Sundance sensation takes us back to 1987. When music fanatic Javed discovers the illustrious back catalogue of The Boss, his world is turned upside down. Already a creative soul, Javed’s passion for music and writing is set alight by the songs of the working-class poet, whose lyrics feel all too familiar to the aspirational teenager. Yearning to escape his rundown hometown and the rules of his traditional Pakistani household, Javed finds himself caught between two worlds and must discover if he too is Born to Run…

“Joyous and funny even as it strikes the occasional melancholy chord, Blinded by the Light is a testament to the small miracle of how the right music manages to find us at just the right time…” — Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine
“A jubilant story that’s told with grounded honesty.” — David Sims, The Atlantic
“Warm, funny, humane and deeply sincere, this ode to Bruce Springsteen, breaking free and belonging isn’t content merely to revel in Springsteen’s greatest hits—although it does, with vibrant, vicarious exhilaration.” — Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
