My beautiful Laundrette
Johnny (Daniel Day-Lewis) has been involved in the racist National Front, and as his past catches up with him, the friendship with Omar and Omar's family is undermined. The situation is aggravated even more by the fact that sexual tension between Johnny and Omar arises.
My beautiful Laundrette is Daniel Day-Lewis' breakthrough film, and he has since won two Oscars for Best Actor, as well as a wealth of other awards.
