Jess Bhamra is a teenager with only one real passion in her life: soccer. She daydreams of being a great soccer star and her hero is David Beckham. She soon strikes up a friendship with Juliette Paxton, Jules to her friends, and joins a girls’ team coached by the rather handsome Joe. She comes from a traditional, close-knit and loving Sikh family. Her parents only want the best for both of their daughters, but Jess’ fascination with sports doesn’t fit into their idea of a young woman’s future. Jess isn’t comfortable sneaking about, and she and Jules have a falling out when they both take an amorous interest in Joe. With her sister’s wedding on the same day as the football final, where a U.S. college scout will be present to assess her performance, Jess must decide if she will support her family or her friends. -Synopsis from IMDb

Born Free (Rated PG)

[Rain date: Sunday, August 15th]

The heartwarming story of a British couple who teach their pet lioness how to survive in the wilds of the African jungles. Joy and George Adamson involuntarily domesticate several lions while living in Kenya. They keep one, named Elsa, until she is fully grown, and rather than turn her over to a zoo, they decide to train her to live like a wild animal so that they can release her into her natural habitat. The film, based on Joy Adamson’s book, is poignant and emotional without ever becoming banal or overly sentimental. -Synopsis from Fandango
