“When I’m dancing I block out the world.” “I know what you mean…” Inspired by British journalist Sarfraz Manzoor’s memoir “Greetings From Bury Park,” the joyous, coming-of-age film is set in 1987, during the austere days of Thatcher’s Britain, and tells of a teenager who learns to live life, understand his family and find his own voice through the words and music of Bruce Springsteen.
