An unconventional love story between a social-climbing young Pakistani and a street punk from London, and at the same time a timely political commentary about the seething England of the Thatcher years, Frears' film introduced us to the then-undiscovered talents of Daniel Day Lewis, the insightful thoughts of screenwriter Hanif Kureishi and one of the most important filmmakers in England. A landmark of the British cinema in the ‘80s. Free entrance
