British film about a young Indian woman who defies her parents' admonishments to stop playing
soccer. Her dream is to be able to play on a professional team, just like her idol, U.K. soccer star David Beckham. But her parents think
that she is embarrassing her family and should instead learn how to prepare Indian food and look for a nice Indian boy to marry. With
Keira Knightley, Parminder Nagra, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Anupam Kher and Archie Panjabi. [1:52]
SEX/NUDITY 3 - We see a car moving rhythmically and we see a man and woman inside with their clothing in disarray. A man and
a woman kiss passionately -- her leg is wrapped around his waist -- and a man and a woman kiss romantically. A man and a woman hug and
nearly kiss, a man caresses a woman's hair and they nearly kiss. Two women hug and kiss (it is non-sexual, although people misunderstand).
A man caresses another man's bare chest. A man and a woman hug, two women hug and people think they are kissing. Men and women dance in a
nightclub. Men talk about a woman's breasts while watching her play soccer. Women undress, to bras and panties, in a locker room. Women
wear tops that reveal bare midriffs, shoulders and cleavage, and short skirts that reveal bare thighs. Men are bare-chested while playing
soccer. A woman and her daughter shop in a lingerie store, and the woman pushes up her daughter's breasts. A woman makes a sexual hand
gesture. A woman holds up a tampon and makes a comment.
VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A woman shoves another woman, tears her shirt and pushes her to the ground (during a soccer match). A
woman slams a soccer ball into a man's crotch. A woman yells at, insults her daughter, and raises her hand to her. People argue and
struggle over a video camera. A woman has a large scar on her leg and we hear that she was burned when she was young (in one scene a man
teases her about it), and a man has a scar on his knee. There are some bumps and scuffles on the soccer field; one woman is hurt during a
game and falls to the field holding her leg.
