Bend It like Beckham is a 2002 British-American-Indian-German romantic sports and indian-themed comedy-drama family film starring Parminder Nagra, Keira Knightley, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Anupam Kher, Shaznay Lewis and Archie Panjabi, first released in the United Kingdom. The film was directed by Gurinder Chadha. Its title refers to the football (commonly called "soccer" in the United States) player David Beckham, and his skill at scoring from free kicks by "bending" the ball past a wall of defenders. The movie is about the 18-year-old daughter of Punjabi Sikhs in London. She is infatuated with football but her parents have forbidden her to play because she is a girl. She joins a local women's team, which makes its way to the top of the league. A stage musical version of the film will open at London's Phoenix Theatre in 2015. Wikipedia
