Details

In Stephen Frears’ controversial and hugely successful drama, Omar (Gordon Warnecke), the son of a Pakistani immigrant to the UK, embarks on a venture to renovate his uncle's laundrette with the help of his childhood friend, ex-National Front member Johnny (Daniel Day Lewis).

Now available for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK, My Beautiful Laundrette remains ground-breaking in its bold exploration of issues of sexuality, race, class and generational difference.

Heralded as one of Britain's most commercially and critically successful films of 1986, it earned Hanif Kureishi an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay as well as launching the career of Daniel Day-Lewis.
