Anita & Me 2006 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
A wonderfully offbeat comedy about teenage self-discovery in the early ‘70s, Anita & Me explores the world of 12-year-old Meena (Chandeep Uppal), who has moved to England with her Indian family. In the tradition of Bend It Like Beckham and My Big Fat Greek Wedding, she is embarrassed by her eccentric relatives and friends and latches onto the town bad girl, the blonde, rebellious Anita Rutter (Anna Brewster). At 14 - blonde, aloof, beautiful, outrageous and sassy - Anita is everything Meena thinks she wants to be. Meena wheedles her way into Anita’s life, but the arrival of a baby brother, teenage hormones, impending entrance exams for the posh grammar school and a motorcycling rebel without a future, threaten to turn her salad days sour. With a stellar cast including Lynn Redgrave, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Meera Syal (The Kumars at Number 42), Mark Williams (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) and Kathy Burke (Absolutely Fabulous), the clash of cultures in the era of flared pants and glam rock reaches new heights of hilarity.
