[Regarding the evils of Bend it Like Beckham]
Playing football in the local park with a few of the local boys one day, Jessie is noticed by a real football player, Juliette 'Jules' Paxton (Keira Knightly). Seeing quality athletics in Jessie, Jules invites Jessie to try out for her all-girl football team. But Jessie knows her parents do not approve of her playing football. But she is so good at it and playing football is all she wants to do. So, she sneaks. A lot. She defies. She deceives. And she lies. Just to get to play football. The poster above fairly well says it all. I can hear it now! "If her parents had let her play, she wouldn't have been forced to sneak and lie." No one forces anyone to do these things. It is a choice for which the defiant one is completely accountable. To say that denial of a privilege forces one to lie is like a bad guy with a gun saying "Don't force me to kill you."
