My Beautiful Laundrette

Synopsis:  Young Londoner Omar (Gordon Warnecke) isn’t sure what he wants out of life, but his uncle Nasser (Saeed Jaffrey) provides a corrupt, capitalist role model as Omar graduates from washing cars for the old crook to running his run-down laundromat. After a chance meeting with Johnny (Daniel Day-Lewis), an old school chum whose flirtation with fascism deeply wounded Omar’s principled Papa (Roshan Seth), Omar hires Johnny to work for him. Soon, the pair begin a romantic relationship that remains as under wraps as the illicit drug-running and enforcement work they perform for Nasser’s associate, Salim (Derrick Branche). On the domestic front, Omar must balance his knowledge of Nasser’s long-running affair with posh Brit Rachel (Shirley Ann Field) with his own loyalty and attraction to Nasser’s westernized daughter, Tania (Rita Wolf). After successfully transforming his laundrette into a vision of resplendent pastel suds and providing a bright spot in his otherwise squalid London neighborhood, Omar seems to have a bright future in Nasser’s organization. The spectre of Johnny’s past, however, combines with Omar’s conflicted immigrant loyalties to threaten the sense of identity the young man has managed to stake out for himself.

Location: allgo, 701 Tillery Suite A-1, Austin TX, 78751
