Bend It Like Beckham
Our next movie has always had a special place in our owners heart. We played it three different times the year it came out in our original Santa Rosa theatre. BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM is a wining crowd pleaser that is about a lot more than just women's soccer. Writer/director Gurinda Chada's film introduced the world to Parminder Nagra, Keira Knightley, and Archie Panjabi. The Orlando Sentinel said "Chadha has an ear and an eye for the funny, the touching and the just plain odd in her culture's gradual assimilation into the British mainstream." While the Seattle Times said "Chadha's created something magical; an atmosphere of happiness and hope, in which we could all bend a ball like Beckham -- or like Jess."
