Bend It Like Beckham is first commercial western film to be shown in North Korea

Something unprecedented has taken place, and it is an excellent start for the new year.

North Korea has just shown the first Western commercial film ever in its country. Granted, I would have picked another movie to begin their journey into great Western film, but Bend It Like Beckham, is pretty good.

It also deals with some non-government sanctioned topics like homosexuality. Yeah, I guess it is a new world.
