|Synopsis:||Set within the Asian community in London, My Beautiful Laundrette is an unusual love story concerned with identity and entrepreneurial spirit during the Thatcher years. Omar (Gordon Warnecke) takes over the running of his wheeler-dealer uncle's laundrette with the intention of turning it into a glittering palace of commercial success. When he employs childhood friend and ex-National Front member Johnny (Daniel Day Lewis) they become lovers as well as working partners. However, complications soon ensue as the anger of Johnny's deserted gang begins to build and Omar is forced to face increasingly difficult family issues. Written by Hanif Kureishi and skilfully directed by Stephen Frears, My Beautiful Laundrette tackles the difficult issues of racism, sexuality, bigotry, violence and politics in early 80s Britain but still manages to be compassionate, humorous and hugely entertaining.|
