Should Have Been Gay: Bend It Like Beckham


Let's talk about Jules. Because Jules. Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Jules, played by Keira Knightley and Jess played by Parminder Nagara clearly should have been gay in Bend It Like Beckham. If you just edit the movie to completely get rid of Joe, it's the soccer lesbian movie of our dreams. From rumors that director Gurinda Chadha originally wrote the film as a lesbian love story, the undeniable chemistry between Jules and Jess, that "mistaken" kiss scene and Jules and her bandanas, Bend It Like Beckham is the queen of Should Have Been Gays.
