Ep.406: Bend It Like Beckham (2002)

Get to the pitch and square up, we're having a ball talking all about Gurinder Chadha's Bend It Like Beckham. That's right, we're talking sports, which only plays to about 33.3% of our strengths. This tale of two young women battling for their identity against their unique cultures is one of the most beloved sports movies of the last 20 years. But, does it hold up? We talk all about that, and then break it down to talk British Cinema, British Identity, feminism, kinetic editing, and much more.  TIMESTAMPS 00:30 - Introductions and Synopsis 04:37 - Quick Bend It Like Beckham Reviews 14:30 - Expanding the Syllabus 38:37 - Analysis 1:06:08 - Shelf or Trash 1:08:01 - Wrap up and Next Week's Film
