Ice Princess
Casey Carlyle (Michelle Trachtenberg) plays a brainy bookworm who gives up a life devoted to schoolwork for a thrilling new world of axels, spins, best friends, boyfriends and cutthroat competition as she finds herself in the unlikely position of skating for gold. Daring to attempt what she thought was impossible, the once shy and awkward Casey discovers how to literally take flight. Casey is just trying to please her hard-working single mom (Joan Cusack), who's got her daughter on the fast track to Harvard, when she decides to do a report on the physics of figure skating. Having fantasized on her backyard pond about becoming an Olympic champion since she was a little girl, Casey is ecstatic, and nervous, to finally have a chance to meet the elite skaters at her local rink. What she doesn't know is that her whole existence is about to be sent for a wild spin when it turns out that Casey's intelligence has helped her become a skating prodigy. Now, as she gets the chance to train with champion-in-the-making Gen Harwood (Hayden Panetierre) and Gen's famously tough coach and mother, Tina (Kim Cattrall), Casey sets off on a fun, comedic and life-changing adventure that takes her into a world she never expected to experience. Not only does she get a crash course in the glamour, sweat and tears of skating competitions, she also gets her first taste of romance as she falls for Gen's teenage brother, the rink's hunky Zamboni driver, Teddy (Trevor Blumas). As she trains with gritty determination, Casey's confidence begins to soaróbut with the big championship looming, she is about to find out if she really has what it takes to leave her old life behind and truly become an Ice Princess. World-class skaters including five-time World Figure Skating Champion Michelle Kwan and Olympic Gold Medalist Brian Boitano can be seen in cameo roles. Although it's often predictable, Ice Princess which was was directed by Tim Fywell ("I Capture the Castle") is an enjoyable comedy-drama full of good-spirited warmth and some nice skating sequences.
