In Stephen Frears controversial and hugely successful drama, Omar (Gordon Warnecke), a 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).

Now available for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK, My Beautiful Launderette was 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.

Special Features:

  • Century of Cinema: Typically British (Stephen Frears, 1994, 74 mins): Director Stephen Frears explores the wealth of stylish and familiar images created by the British film industry in the 20th Century, aided by fellow directors Alexander Mackendrick, Michael Apted, and Alan Parker and writer Gavin Lambert.
  • I'm British But... (Gurinder Chadha, 1989, 30 mins): Fascinating documentary on what it meant to be a young British Asian in the 1980s from the director of Bend it Like Beckham
  • Memsahib Rita (Prathiba Parma, 1994, 20 mins): Using a blend of magic realism drama, Memsahib Rita looks at the physical and emotional violence of racism. Starring Nisha Nayar & Meera Syal
