The new film Blinded By the Light takes its title — and some of its inspiration — from the music of Bruce Springsteen. It’s based on the real-life story of British journalist Sarfraz Manzoor, who wrote a memoir about how his life was profoundly changed when he was introduced to Springsteen’s music. Hayley Atwell, who stars in the film, told us she was instantly gripped by the script when she first saw it. (Click on the media bar below to hear Hayley Atwell)
Blinded By the Light opens in theaters this Friday.
