Analyze the relationship of Jess and Jane in Bend it Like Beckham, is this the true relationship of the film? Is the relationship between them heterosexual or homosexual? Is the character of Joe created to enforce normal roles?
Interesting topic. Would help to clarify the proposed thesis: If the relationship is heterosexual, then does that suggest____? If homosexual, then ____? – Nate Océan5 years ago
Definitely a topic to be investigated, but perhaps be careful not to monopolize on this relationship as homosexual or heterosexual, but rather the reason Juliette's mother thought she was gay: the fact that she wasn't a girly girl and played soccer was a contributing factor. I think the underlining concern is not sexuality, but gender roles and expectations. While Juliette's mom tries helplessly to buy her daughter a pretty bra instead of a sports bra, Jess has to hide the fact that she is playing soccer because her family's Indian culture doesn't think it appropriate for a girl to be playing soccer. – Gaby4 years ago
Whoa-- mind blown. Never ever thought about it like this. This could be an outstanding topic to write about. – JulieCMillay4 years ago
