From August 2003:
Name: Bend it Like Beckham
Directed By: Gurinder Chadha
Written By: Gurinder Chadha, Paul Mayeda Berges
Type: Drama, Comedy
Starring: Parminder Nagra, Keira Knightley, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers
Jesminder Bhamra (Parminder) is a girl in love with soccer. She dreams to play professionally. There’s just one problem, her family is desi. The movie is about her fight against Indian traditions that prevent her from achieving her dreams.
I think the movie was okay; nothing great. There were plots, sub-plots and sub-sub-plots, and everything falls into place in the end. I didn’t “fancy” that.
Rating: 2.5 out of 10
I would have given it a 2, but the main actors acted well.
Watch it if you want, I’d stay away from this one.
