Bend It Like Beckham
Source: Catholic News Service
Spirited cross-cultural comedy in which an Anglo-Indian girl (Parminder Nagra) plays on an amateur girls' soccer team and finds herself drawn to its young Irish coach (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) despite the strong objections her traditional Sikh parents. Director Gurinder Chadha's winning coming-of-age tale treats its characters with appealing generosity while saluting themes of family, friendship, tolerance and teamwork. A discreet sexual situation and references, fleeting drunkenness, minimal profanity and a crass expression. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
