Great movie

The mom of the skater sometimes wears short skirts and v necks, and the other mom is really mean to her daughter, another skater, but besides that, this movie is really good for fans of figure skating.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This movie seems to be a labor of love, successfully depicting the grit and behind-the-scenes determination young skaters must bring to the ice day after day, year after year. Director Damian Lee cowrote the script for Ice Girls with his wife, Lara Daans (Kelly), who was a competitive skater before she turned to acting. Scenes of Hunsley and du Toit executing spectacular moves on the ice are well photographed and the story, though sometimes formulaic, is told with professional precision. Young skating fans will find lots to enjoy.
