Blinded by the Light ★★★★

very sweet little movie

• Viveik Kalra looks like Jake Gyllenhaal if you're trying to trick someone into this over Spider-Man.

• one thing I've always been iffy about with teen movies about kids who are kind of good at things is that sometimes they struggle to argue that outside of just telling us and I like that the film actually shows Javed's writing process and work.

• Hayley Atwell plays an antifascist English teacher
