Stephen Frears and Hanif Kureishi's Oscar-nominated drama is screening as part of the Film4 Classics season.

Set in the Pakistani community of London, My Beautiful Laundrette follows the fortunes of handsome young Omar who, together with his English friend Johnny, takes over a run-down laundrette given to him by his rich uncle.

Together they transform it into a gaudy, neon-lit palace complete with muzak and video screens. Against a background of racial tension and poverty in the rough London suburb, their own relationship, portrayed with tenderness and passion, blossoms to love.
