DMU Pride

My Beautiful Laundrette 15

Wed 19 Feb, 6.15pm

★★★★ – Empire

Omar, a young Pakistani man, is reunited with his former lover Johnny (Day-Lewis) and together they attempt to turn around a laundrette business owned by Omar’s uncle.

Adapted for the screen by Hanif Kureishi from his own novel (earning him an Oscar nomination), this iconic Thatcher-era cross-cultural love story is a study of contrasts in British society – between rich and poor, between the classes, between native British and immigrant groups, between straight and gay.


Dir: Stephen Frears
