In the 1960s, a group of friends at an all girls school learn that their school is going to be combined with a nearby all boys school. They concoct a plan to save their school while dealing with everyday problems along the way.
A high school slacker who's rejected by every school he applies to opts to create his own institution of higher learning, the South Harmon Institute of Technology, on a rundown piece of property near his hometown.
I must confess that I think well of this movie simply because of its subject matter-my favorite figure skater ever. It's kinda hokey and idealized, and they didn't always get the facts straight about Oksana's life, but it's well-meaning and sympathetic. Any other movie of this quality, I'd probably give a lesser score to, but this one is kinda special because it's about Oksana. People who aren't her fans wouldn't like it, and those who have no clue who she is might find it decent but cloying. For Oksana fans, though, it's nothing short of required viewing.
