Bend It Like Beckham, directed by Gurinder Chadha
Aspiring football star, Jess, dreams of stadium lights and roaring crowds, however her parents’ traditional values don’t bode well with her desire to be on the pitch.
When Jess meets Jules, a fellow football fanatic, she’s invited to join a women’s only football team and quickly finds herself rapt by the new world of likeminded athletes. However, trouble lies ahead when Jess’ parents find out what she’s been doing with her spare time.
After starting life as a book, then a feature length film, Bend It Like Beckham has now been adapted for the stage - now showing in theatres. Check out more information right here.
