Last Friday the film festival Telgte of the Leistungskurs Englisch, led by Karsten Rossien, came to its second part. Maximilian Lürwer und Henrik Ermeling presented “My beautiful Laundrette.“ This film is dealing with intercultural problems; Omar, a young man with foreign roots, works in an old laundrette to finance college. There he meets the old school friend Johnny and Omar offers him a job. Johnny leaves his xenophobic gang due his feelings for Omar and they develop a secret romantic relationship.
Lürwer added that this film was so versatile because it also picks homosexuality out as a central theme.
