(2002, Deepak Nayar and Gurinder Chada) “Jess (Parminder Nagra) loves nothing better than kicking a ball about - unless it's her idol, Becks. Unfortunately her family clings to traditional Asian values. While they're willing to tolerate her fanaticism, the very idea of their daughter joining a local girls' team makes them see red. But, encouraged by her new best pal Jules (Keira Knightley) and dishy Irish coach Joe (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), she defiantly signs on with the team, even though she has to go to extreme lengths to keep it secret.” – Time Out. 35mm. Approx. 112 min. MPAA rated PG-13.
