My Beautiful Laundrette - 1985

Omar is the aspiring capitalist given an opportunity by his uncle to grab a share of Britain's wealth by "squeezing the tits of the system". He hires his school friend, Johnny, a former Fascist and current lover, to do the graft in converting the laundrette into a veritable palace. This is an unacceptable role reversal for Johnny's former bullyboy friends, who lurk with malevolent presence, unable to understand his change of heart.
