Bend it Like Beckham
There is also a book based on the film.
“‘Bend it like Beckham’ is better known as a film, but Nharinder Dhami’s book of the same name follows the film faithfully, even reproducing some of the dialogue. The materials in this kit are based on the pivotal Chapter 7 of the book, and also make reference to the film” (British Council).
Brit Lit from the British Council has excellent worksheets to work with before and after watching the film , which are free to download.
