Bend it Like Beckham in a nutshell
A comedy about girls bending the rules to reach their goal (if you’ll pardon the pun!). The movie explores the growing world of women’s football, and follows two 18-year-olds with their hearts set on a future in professional football. For one of the characters and her ultra-conservative Sikh family, talent enough doesn't seem to convince them of her prospects in the game.
You don’t have to be into football to enjoy this movie. It has some funny moments and ends on a positive note, and the music combines a good mix of pop tunes alongside traditional Asian vibe music. It’s fully guaranteed to give you a feel-good factor and may even tempt a few girls out for a kick around in the local park.
