The downloadable resource below is a part of PCA's collection of movie discussion guides, which aim to help you make the most out of movie viewing with your team or child. Movies provide a plethora of "teachable moments" that can be seized upon by coaches and parents to help young athletes take away lessons that will help them be successful, contributing members of society.

Bend it Like Beckham is a story of a young London-based woman, Jess, as she struggles to find the balance between her strict home life and her love of football (soccer). This film uses themes of balancing sport and family, maintaining self-belief, coping with societal pressure, and self-motivation.
