Before you head out to the bar to watch the only four weeks of soccer you'll watch all year, we wanted to bring one soccer-related flick to your attention. Our friends over at recently premiered 'Kicking It,' the incredible 2008 documentary about seven homeless people that participate in the Homeless World Cup, an annual soccer tournament featuring all-homeless players.

Narrated by Colin Farrell, the event has taken place in a different country each year since 2003. And erase any pre-conceived thoughts of ragged old men running around chasing a ball. As the film shows, the 500 homeless players chosen for the event (from 48 nations) train just as hard as any professional athlete. It's an inspiring, entertaining story about an event most people didn't even know existed.
