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

Interviewer 2: You're a lovely girl, but I'm just not sure...
Kim: Let me try. You're just not sure I'm the right kind of girl for your clients. It's hard to say why exactly, but it's probably something to do with the fact that I'm not called Arabella, or Isabella, or anything-Bella. That I don't have hundred-quid highlights, perfect nails, I'm just guessing here. Expensively trimmed pubes. So even though I might be the only person with actual experience, and actual work in the actual real world, and you know I'd ...

Excellent, great family entertainment
16 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

We got preview tickets to this film at Parrs Wood Didsbury this morning - my wife and daughter were very keen to see it because they love Ed Westwick in Gossip Girl. They thought it might have been too much of a chick flick for me but it is one of the best films I have seen for a long time, it has great story line, very well made, actors absolutely play their roles brilliantly. Its great to see a British film back on the screen. The make up of the film editing/production is very well cut and doesn't have the usual padded out parts in the middle where I normally get bored!! A great film for all the family, but be aware once your children have seen it they will be begging you to take them skiing!!
