This movie is about Jess Bhamra, an eighteen-year-old Indian girl who dreams of playing soccer (football) as well as her idol, real-life footballer/soccer star David Beckham. Oppurtunity comes knocking at Jess' door when Juliet "Jules" sees Jess playing soccer in the park, and gives Jess the oppurtunity to play with a girls' soccer team. Jess is thrilled when she makes the cut. The one problem is that Jess' mom wants her to marry an Indian boy, learn to cook aloo gobi, help get ready for her older sister's wedding, and definitely NOT play football. However, Jess sneaks out to play with the team anyway. Jess and Jules become close friends, however, they find that they both like the same boy - their coach, Joe. While all of this is going on, Jess tries to keep her family convinced that she is not playing football. Will Jess' family discover that she has been playing football? Will Jules and Jess ruin their friendship over Joe? This is a fun movie to watch, and Parminder Nagra, Keira Knightley, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers were perfectly cast as Jess, Jules, and Joe.
