Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Bend It Like It Beckham Jesminder is unlike any other girl. She is very un-stereotypical. She has this intense passion and love for the 'Beautiful-Game' (as described by Pele) football. Her room is genuinely a holy place to the Manchester United player David Beckham. Jess's room is filled with football posters. However, David Beckham has been described as a 'skinhead boy' from Jess's mom. This is because she is tired of telling Jess not to watch football all the time. Jess is British born and comes from a pious Sikh family. Jess is very talented and gifted at football. She plays like a professional footballer with skills and great balance. On the other side it is David Beckham who inspires Jess; David Beckham is highly inspirational to her as he is the stimulation of Jess's mind.

Conclusion

Jules's bedroom is also filled posters but of Mia Hamm. Both friends develop a fast paced relationship above all this is where viewers get to see the sights of differences between the two backgrounds. Unfortunately, a few problems arise when Pinky's future in law spot Jess and Jules on the pavement laughing together in public. Pinky's futures in law observe the wrongs thoughts in their heads as they assume the shorthaired Jules was a male. They also thought Jess was in a relationship with a white male. On the other end, Jules's mom thinks that Jules is lesbian, falling in love with a girl. Wrong thoughts like these shape the character and due to what Pinky's future in law saw as a result they turned down the wedding. Similarly, another issue awakens when Jess falls in love with an Irish born coach, Joe. All the wrong thoughts, grudges, hatred feelings end in a mixed mouthwatering d´┐Żnouement that goes through Pinky's wedding night and Jess's very important football final. The cultures continue to strike one another with disagreement but in way of answering back respectively. ?? ?? ?? ??
