ANITA AND ME (article first published : 2005-04-8)

On April 12 at 23h00, M-Net will première the comedy drama Anita and Me with Chandeep Uppal, Anna Brewster, Sanjeen Bhaskar, Ayesha Dharker, Lynn Redgrave and Kathy Burke. The film was directed in 2002 by Metin Huseyin.

This is described as a nostalgic coming-of-age story along the lines of Bend It Like Beckham about the friendship between two English girls, one Asian, one white.

From best-selling actress and author Meera Syal (she’s part of the comedy team Goodness Gracious Me and also wrote the book upon which the film Bhaji On The Beach was based) comes this charming rites of passage story set in the 70s in a small English village. It revolves around the friendship between a lively 12-year-old Punjabi girl, Meena, and 14-year-old Anita, the sexy, rebellious leader of a three-girl gang called the Wenches. The story is narrated by Meena, who recites from her diary in Bridget Jones fashion.
