Bend It Like Beckham director Gurinder Chadha turns her hand to a coming-of-age movie adapted from the novels by Louise Rennison. Revealing the same wit and insight that Chadha brought to Bend It, the story centres on plain 14-year-old Georgia (Georgia Groome), who makes it her mission to snog one of two "fit" twins newly arrived at her school. In the background her parents' marriage is not going well, but Georgia is nothing if not sharp and with a tight-knit group of friends fast learns to cope with the hassles and misfortunes of teenage life.
