In Stephen Frears's groundbreaking and hugely successful drama, Omar (Gordon Warnecke), the son of a Pakistani immigrant, 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).

Written by Hanif Kureishi (The Buddha of Suburbia), My Beautiful Laundrette's bold exploration of sexuality, race, class and generational difference is compassionate, humorous and entertaining. A commercial and critical success, it earned Hanif Kureishi an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay and launched the career of Daniel Day-Lewis.
