Ice Castles (2010)

In my view…

The story of this television broadcasted film (sadly not been in cinemas) is about a young girl who dreams of figure skating and one day becoming a champion. The road to achieve such a succes is hard and she has to leave her family for a while. The beauty of this film is, at a sudden point she does not see that well anymore and she goes back to her family who always support her. From that moment on, she becomes a strong woman who makes her own decisions.

As far as I know, I have never seen acting the people of the top characters before. They fulfilled their role beautifully and sometimes a bit more simple. But this film is a remake of the film Ice Castles (1978). And in my opinion is that time difference not that clear.

The sport figure skating is beautiful! And this film shows that even with bad luck, tragedy or something negative in your life. If you really want something and fight for it, you can do it! And even better when your closests family and friends always got your back

A lovely film to watch on just a weekday evening.


I am not telling about the story – never do in my film reviews – you have to see the film yourself and make your own opinion. I hope you like the film too. It is worth to watch it multiple times.
