Synopsis by Mark Deming
David Beckham is unarguably the world's reigning star in football (soccer to Americans, a growing number of whom know who he is). After rising to stardom on the playing field, he became a public scandal following his disastrous performance in a match against Argentina in the 1998 World Cup series, only to redeem himself and climb to even greater heights as the captain of Team England. Beckham also became nearly as famous for his life off the field, becoming a fashion icon, beefcake idol, and the husband of pop star Victoria Adams (better known as Posh Spice of the Spice Girls). Something About Beckham is an unauthorized documentary that takes a look at Beckham's life and career, and features interviews with friends, athletes, and associates who help paint a portrait of the man behind the image.
