Certificate 15

In Thatcher’s Britain, the opening of a new laundrette in London provides the backdrop for a story of capitalist dreams, racial tension and forbidden love between Omar, a young Pakistani man and Johnny, who’s part of a right-wing extremist group. Hanif Kureishi’s amusing and insightful script delivers a powerful swipe at 1980s Britain.
