Here's Where You Can Watch Bend It Like Beckham

Made with a small budget of $6 million, "Bend It Like Beckham," a romantic comedy centered around a women's soccer team in London, England, was a surprise hit when it was released in 2002. Directed by Gurinder Chadha, the film follows Parminder Nagra as Jess, the daughter of a family of British Indian Sikhs, who dreams of becoming a professional soccer player despite her family's traditional belief that as a woman, she should be preparing for marriage instead. Joining a local women's team, Jess meets and becomes close friends with her teammate Jules, played by Keira Knightley, but their friendship is soon tested as they both develop feelings for their coach, Joe, played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers. 

Although the movie depicts a relatively particular experience in Jess's case, Chadha paints a perfect picture of her story in a movie that's equally hilarious, romantic, and empowering, and it's no surprise that almost 20 years after it was released, "Bend It Like Beckham" is still a fan-favorite. So if you're looking to check out the comedy for the first time or the 50th time, here's where you can watch "Bend It Like Beckham" right now.
