Who is up for seeing an inspirational movie and then having dinner afterward for discussion and fun? This movie, which was a favorite at Sundance this year, will not be released until Aug 14th, so I will update with location and times closer to the date.

This is a brief synopsis of the movie by Alex Billington:

"Blinded by the Light is a joyful story of courage, love, hope, family and the unique ability of music to lift the human spirit. The film tells the true story of Javed (Viveik Kalra), a British teen of Pakistani descent growing up in the town of Luton, England, in 1987. Amidst the racial and economic turmoil of the times, he writes poetry as a means to escape the intolerance of his town and the inflexibility of his traditional father. But when a classmate introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteen, Javed sees parallels to his working-class life in the powerful lyrics. As Javed discovers a cathartic outlet for his own pent-up dreams, he also begins to find the courage to express himself in his own unique voice. "
