244. Bend it Like Beckham (2002)
Lesbian? Her birthday's in March. I thought she was a Pisces.
It is not often that a movie can deal with as many hot-button issues as this and remain entertaining while avoiding preachiness. This film covers teenage angst, sports, friendship, sexuality, religion, and cultural diversity without missing a single beat. It is a shame that Kiera Knightley became the big star out of this movie though, because Parminder Nigra, in my humble opinion, is a much more talented actress. Also, I am secure enough in my manhood to say that Johnathan Rhys Meyers is one sexy beast!
