Buddha Of Suburbia, The

Naveen Andrews (Lost, The English Patient), Roshan Seth (Monsoon Wedding, Gandhi), and Brenda Blethyn (Secrets and Lies) star in this coming-of-age story adapted from the best-selling novel by Hanif Kureishi (My Beautiful Laundrette), with original music by David Bowie.

When his father (Seth) becomes a guru in London's 1970s suburban Buddhist scene and indulges in an affair with the free-thinking Eva, Karim (Andrews) leaves his dreams in his bedroom for a sharp intake of real life. Set to a backdrop of politics, fashion, music, drugs, morality and race, Karim must negotitate adolescence, a dysfunctional family, and his own sexuality, as he seeks enlightenment on his own terms.
