Exclusive first look: Julien Hallard’s 'Let The Girls Play'

11 January 2017 2:12 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Indie Sales unveils first image of female soccer comedy.

Paris-based Indie Sales has unveiled a first image of French director Julien Hallard’s comedy Let The Girls Play inspired by the creation of France’s first official all-female soccer squad in the 1960s.

Described as social comedy in the vein of Bend It Like Beckham, the film revolves around the early days of a real-life, all-women squad set up almost by chance on the fringes of France’s Stade de Reims football club at the end of the 1960s.

Although women have played soccer for centuries, female teams only started to be recognised by official football bodies in countries such as France and the UK in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Rising French actors Vanessa Guide and Max Boublil [pictured] are co-stars in the mainly female cast.
