#53: My Beautiful Laundrette (1985)

June 12, 2020

Stephen Frears’ MY BEAUTIFUL LAUNDRETTE is an odd film. Set in South London during the Thatcher Era, our main character Omar, son of an immigrant from Pakistan, is working for his uncle to make a run-down coin-op laundry profitable again. He enlists his childhood friend Johnny (Daniel Day-Lewis), a recovering fascist punk to help out. Together Omar and Johnny find humor, danger, and improbably, love. It is an interesting ride, join us.
