We are delighted to have played a part in the making of Gurinder Chadha’s latest feature “Blinded by the Light”, which has been released in cinemas all over the UK today (9 August), and is already heading towards being the feel-good summer movie of 2019.
Hannah Leader, Peter Dally, and Matthew Fox of Preiskel & Co advised and concluded all necessary documentation to closing production legal and financing legal work in connection with the film, and have been credited, with Hannah also being one of the film’s Executive Producers.
Set in 1980s Luton, the film follows a working-class British Pakistani boy whose life was transformed by the music of “The Boss”, Bruce Springsteen, whose songs and lyrics inspired him to dream big and escape his own – as he saw it – no-hope town.
The film is set for a wide worldwide release, launching in the United States next week (16 August) by Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema. We are wishing the film every success.
