About

Set in 1980s Britain, My Beautiful Laundrette tells the story of Omar Hussein, a young Pakistani man living in London who takes over his uncle's ailing laundrette with the help of old flame, street-punk Johnny. Despite the laundrette's storming success, its new owners become victims of increasing racial and homophobic attacks. Frears' spirited film evokes the polemics of an era with comedy, wit and pathos. Dir. Stephen Frears, UK, 1985, 97 mins
