Bend it Like Beckham (2002) is a story of a young Indian girl, Jesminder, and her dream of playing soccer as well as her hero David Beckham. Her parents would like her to be more conventional, which would mean settling down and getting married, but she, encouraged by her friend Jules, joins a local women’s soccer team instead.
You may recognize a young Kiera Knightly in this film. Kiera Knightly is neither getting married nor in a period piece, so she may be hard to recognize.
If you’re looking for a fun, comical film to watch, I highly recommend this film!
