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

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."

I'm *terribly* enlightened. That said, many of the people in the girl's family are about as ugly to her.
