Bend it like Beckham

We saw a really neat film on Friday, Bend It Like Beckham, which is as much feel-good fun as a movie can get without being formulaic.

Ignore the title if you’re not versed in English football. The film is like “Greek Wedding” in tone (living life among a smothering-if-vibrant family) and “Billy Elliot” in theme (following a ‘crazy’ dream because of exceptional talent), with a great soundtrack and lots of girl-power goodness.

One thought on “Bend it like Beckham

  1. I’ve been waiting for the details you promised earlier, but my curiosity has gotten the best of me. Spill it…Pilot/Commander, Mission Specialist, or Payload Specialist?

    Sounds like a cool way to spend New Years (better than sleeping through the ball drop on TV).
