Storyline

Seventeen-year-old Farley has led a sheltered life, raised on a diet of home schooling, organic living and trips to the art gallery. To his parents' dismay, Farley loves to play shinny with the local rink rats. To their even greater dismay, Farley is scouted and signed by the owner (Stephen McHattie) of a junior league team, where he becomes an instant star. But Farley discovers that stardom comes with a price-including the expectation to fight on the ice. Throw in a changing relationship with his best friend (Allie MacDonald), and Farley finds himself losing his way. Written by oddity94

a hockey musical myETVmedia 'sort of' liked
7 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

"Score: A Hockey Musical" was the gala opener for tiff 2010 festival. A very Canadian film about a sport we are passionate about. The audience greeted the film with cheers and applause.

Score has Canadian camp classic stamped in maple leaves all over it. Well equipped with a sense of humor, this film delves head first in to what it means to be Canadian. The answer will likely not surprise you, however, the journey towards it is enjoyable.

Farley Gordon is a gifted young hockey player who has never participated in an organized hockey game due to his unique parents who have home-schooled him. It takes less than 2 min for Farley to burst in to song, regaling us with his love for hockey in stereotypical Canadian slang. After being discovered, Farley rockets in to hockey stardom but quickly finds that reconciling his love for the game and his Pacifist morality is more challenging than scoring Crosby style goals.

Star cameos appear through out the film, including Walter Gretzky, Nelly Furtado, Hawksley Workman and George Stroumboulopoulos...
