Here’s a great movie tip from a reader (thanks, oh you-with-the-unprintable-email-address): Offside hits theaters in April — though no doubt a rather small number of theaters. Here’s the synopsis:
Many Iranian girls love soccer as much as their countrymen and sport fans all over the world, but they are prevented by law from attending live soccer matches in their country. Inspired by the day when his own daughter was refused entry to a soccer stadium in Iran, Jafar Panahi’s OFFSIDE follows a day in the life of a group of Iranian girls.
Girls in drag, hijinks, soccer — what’s not to love?
