inspiring and timeless story of the result of hard work and taking chances
23 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I viewed this movie after school, and I remember an inspiring story of a young man with a stuttering problem, finding his voice as an ice skater.

What was particularly interesting was the older skater who couldn't skate any more and how he decided to give this young man a chance, and the relationship that developed with the female skater.

It demonstrated the hard work involved in skating, and it truly was rewarding seeing the young man achieve the goal at the end.

Rance Howard and actor who played young man are very convincing. I would love to see this movie again as an adult, as I would like the perspective of how the female skater relates to the young man.
