Bend it like Beckham

Two ambitious girls, despite their parents' wishes, have their hearts set on careers in professional soccer. A kaleidoscope of color and culture clash humorously as an Indian family in London tries to raise their soccer-playing daughter in a traditional way. Unlike tarty elder sister Pinky, who is preparing for an Indian wedding and a lifetime of cooking the perfect chapatti, Jess' dream is to play soccer professionally like her hero David Beckham. Wholeheartedly against Jess' unorthodox ambition, her parents eventually reveal that their reservations have more to do with protecting her than with holding her back. When Jess is forced to make a choice between tradition and her beloved sport, her family must decide whether to let her chase her dream...and a soccer ball.

Director Q&A

Also hear from Gurinder Chadha, the incredible director behind Bend It Like Beckham, Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging, Bride snd Prejudice and It's a Wonderful Afterlife. Gurinder will be hosting a Q&A session after the screening, so make sure you stick around and get answers to all your nitty, gritty questions!

This screening is NOT ticketed, all you need to do is show up on the day. Deckchairs are first come, first serve. If all the deckchairs are taken, you are still able to view the film.
