Review

Jess is a Sikh teenager with a passion for football, something that her traditionalist parents, who want her to grow up as a nice Asian girl with an arranged marriage and cooking Aloo Gobi, are horrified by. After making friends with white girl Jules she is introduced to the local womens' team, for whom she must play without her parents' knowiledge, and where she develops a forbidden love interest with the coach. Poor girl, her parents find out everything she does, and imagine worse. A witty coming of age drama with a few flat bits but lots of very good ones. Ideal for any teen who has parent problems and anyone else who just likes a good movie.
