The film director will introduce a showing of his ground-breaking portrait of 80’s Britain at Primrose Hill Community Library
Film director Stephen Frears will introduce a screening of his ground-breaking film My Beautiful Laundrette at Primrose Hill Community Library.
His portrait of Thatcher's Britain was made 35 years ago and starred Daniel Day-Lewis and Gordon Warnecke in a tale of an inter-racial gay love affair among the tumble dryers.
The indie film established the reputations of Day-Lewis and screenwriter Hanif Kureishi and launched the company Working Title Films.
The heady mix of culture clash, capitalism, suds and sexuality also brought Frears international recognition and he went on to make the likes of Dangerous Liaisons, Florence Foster Jenkins and The Queen.
