Description

If you're 18, love Beckham and can bend a ball like him the world's your oyster, right? Wrong. If you're Jess (Parminder K. Nagra) - 18, Indian and a girl - forget it. Do you think your marriage-obsessed folks will let you play a man's game?

If you're Jules (Keira Knightley) - 18, English and a girl - that means going to the States where the girls get paid, get sponsorship and get proper respect. Jess and Jules are well on their way with help from their coach, Joe (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers), until they both fall in love with him…

Review

"Bend It Like Beckham is true girl power. This glorious comedy centers on Jess (Parminder Nagra), an Indian girl born in England whose only desire is to become a football--or, as we say on this side of the Atlantic, soccer--star like her idol, David Beckham; but her traditional family refuses to even consider it. With the help of her new friend Juliet (Keira Knightley), Jess secretly joins a girls' team under the guidance of a male coach (Jonathan Rhys Meyers). As the team starts to gain some attention, Jess's secret can't be kept forever. The story of Bend It Like Beckham is so genuine and detailed that it transcends all the sports-movie formulas that it also fulfills with cheeky exuberance. Wonderfully acted, and written and directed with loving care by Gurinder Chadha (Bhaji on the Beach, What's Cooking?), this movie is pure delight from start to finish." --Bret Fetzer
