1 – Bend it like Beckham (2002)
This is a romantic and catchy story about a girl who has been raised by a very strict and traditional Indian family who didn’t allow her to play football. One day, playing for fun, she was seen by a semi-pro coach who invited her to join a team. She stands out a lot but she has to keep this secret from her family because she believed that they would never accept her as a football player. It’s interesting because it naturally brings – in a very smooth way – the conversation about gender and the gender gap in today’s society. This movie will be played on 05/06 on Tuesday. Check out the trailer below:
2 – Escape to Victory (1981)
