Warner Bros.; Directed by Gurinder Chadha; Rated PG-13; 118 minutes; 2019

Javed, a British teen of Pakistani descent, is growing up in England in 1987. Amidst the racial and economic turmoil of the times, he writes poetry as a means to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father.
