Bend It Like Beckham—Friday, September 18, on Disney+
A modern classic Bend It Like Beckham follows 18-year-old Jess (played by Parminder Nagra) who wants to play soccer professionally. Therefore it’s not surprising that her idol is none other than David Beckham. However, her strict Indian parents forbids her from pursuing a career in soccer and want her to follow a more traditional path. This isn’t helped by the fact that her sister Pinky (played by Archie Panjabi) is about to get married. Soon Jess’s skills on the field attract the attention of Jules Paxton (Keira Knightley) and she is convinced to play for a semi-pro team. In order to do so though, Jess must create excuses to hide her career and a crush she’s developed on her coach (played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers) from her family.
