“My Beautiful Laundrette” at IFC on Aug 19
Don’t miss one of our favorite queer films ever – “My Beautiful Laundrette” directed by Stephen Frears and starring the young and handsome leads – Daniel Day Lewis and Gordon Warnecke – with a screenplay by Hanif Kureishi. This classic desi-Brit queer film from the 80s is part of the final summer event in the IFC Center’s Queer/Art/Film series, organized by Adam Baran and Ira Sachs.
The event will open with a 60s Bollywood clip, and will be followed by some lively post film discussion about movie — “a story of queer desire animated by dynamics of immigration, class, colonialism, and the dubious promise of urban subcultures that were liberatory and racist in equal measure”.
