It's about soccer, and it's a pretty European film, complete with: oooo, those dastardly Americans!/I should have gone to America to make money, boo-hoo.

The Indian-immigrant angle is interesting too, especially the one line from Keira Knightley's mom (the elderly white-British matron) who basically cooes at her daughter's Indian friend, saying, in effect: it's *so* good that you y... read more

Romances That Should Have Actually Happened (6 movies items)

"Jules and Joe (Keira Knightley and Jonathan Rhys Meyers) It's not enough that Jess is going against her family tradition by playing soccer. She has to hook up with Joe, someone who's not Indian. Also someone she doesn't look good with. Why couldn't she just like her Indian friend? Jules and Joe are a better match."

The 30 Best Teen Movies of the Past 30 Years (30 movies items)

"Culture and athletics clash when a young Orthodox Sikh (Parminder Nagra) defies her parents' wishes and joins the local soccer team with the encouragement of her best friend (Keira Knightley). It's rare a British teen film makes a splash in the States, but the movie's dry humor and teen rebellion won it many fans."
