Storyline

Pretty tomboy Kim Matthews, 19, used to be a champion skateboarder - but now she's stuck in a dead end job trying to support her Dad. Opportunity comes knocking in the form of a catering job in the one of the most exclusive chalets in the Alps. At first, Kim's baffled by this bizarre new world of posh people, champagne and skiing - but then she discovers snowboarding, and the chance to win some much-needed prize money at the big end-of-season competition. But before she can become a champion again, Kim's going to have to dig deep to overcome her fears. Hard enough, without the complicating factor of Jonny, her handsome - though spoken for - boss...

Quotes

Caroline: She's a chalet girl. My God, it is such a cliché. I wouldn't have minded so much if you were discrete, but Bernhardt said the two of you were all over each other. On the beginner slope.
Jonny: Bernhardt could learn a few things about being discrete himself.
Caroline: Honey, do you realize what you're risking, here? You have to stop this right now, or I will!
Jonny: This isn't "Jane Austin", mom. Look when you and dad met...
Caroline: Enough, Jonathan. I just think you can do better.
Jonny: Well, I don't think *dad* could have done ...

Felicity Jones is great as Chalet Girl. :)
26 September 2011 | by JimmyCollinsSee all my reviews

Felicity Jones is such a great up and comer, she will certainly have a long career ahead of her, she's got an extremely likable screen presence. The story of Chalet Girl is sweet and innocent, but not too innocent, the character of Kim makes thus film not the annoying cheesy romance it so easily could have been.

If it was American it would not have been as enjoyable, even the one American character in the film (Brooke Shields), is the most annoying of all of them, even though she plays trophy wife to perfection she is still very mean and annoying.

Ed Westwick impressed me also, I thought he wouldn't be able to shake off the whole Chuck Bass characterization, but Henie convincing as the nice rich boy who falls for the working class Kim.

The alps where the movie is filmed are absolutely gorgeous, it's movies like this that make you want to go on holidays. The performances all round are wonderful but like I said earlier this movie belongs to Jones. She's just lovely.

I hope you enjoy it. Quite different to the usual romantic comedy but much better also. :)
