He almost made it, little bastard little bugger” (Pg 10) though later in the book we see Ender using this as a way to enhance his heroism as he wants to prove his brother wrong. Elpahaba is seen as an outcast as she is born with emerald coloured skin, her heroism was limited since she was young as she was looked down on for being different.

The Indian born protagonist, Jessminder, finds herself caught in the middle between her love for soccer verses her love for her authoritarian family. Her struggle is adamant from the beginning with the use of non-diegetic sound effects illuminating the juxtaposing British modern pop music against the cultural Indian music, establishing a segregated mood within the film. Jess’ inability to belong is amplified through the racial slurs made by the opposing soccer team using degrading comments such as “Paki” and “black.” Her family create a disaffection between them and Jess because of their strict views and lack of understanding to a modern British society that Jess desires to belong in. As a result, she is constantly rebelling and sneaking around in order to follow her dreams. In the beginning, Chadha uses isolating close up shot’s of Jess to exhibit her lack of connection to others but as the film progresses, wider shots are used involving the other characters.

Some want to make it on varsity others just want to be a part of a soccer team so Junior Varsity fits them well. What amazes me is even the out of shape kids keep on returning, even though they know what they are getting them self’s into .Which gives me even more motivation to keep going, because if they keep returning even after throwing up the nasty school then I know I have no excuse. In the weight room, it sounds like the lunch room, full of Mindless monkey chatter of either actual interesting information or mindless talk to dull the thought of how sore all we will be
