    Product Description

    Young, beautiful, talented Alexis Winston comes from nowhere to become a figure skating superstar. But her rise to stardom isn’t easy. She has to push herself, reinvent herself, and most painfully of all, leave her hometown boyfriend behind. When a tragic fall leaves her blind, she needs someone to believe in her, to love her; someone to convince her she has the strength to skate and dream again. This heartwarming, inspirational, emotional remake of the 1978 Oscar® nominated romantic film (Best Original Song, "Through the Eyes" of Love") stars American Figure Skater Taylor Firth and features skating stars Molly Oberstar, NBC News Olympics Correspondent Andrea Joyce and Olympic Medalist Michelle Kwan. Experience the power and joy of true love…on and off the ice.

    Amazon.com

    A remake of the 1978 Oscar-nominated film Ice Castles, this 2010 film is a story about relationships and a love of ice-skating. Taylor Firth is American figure skater Lexi, a small-town skater whose last-minute decision to perform at invitationals earns her a once-in-a-lifetime chance to train with Boston coach Aiden (Morgan Kelly), compete at nationals, and maybe even make it to the Olympics. Lexi makes the difficult decision to leave her father (Henry Czerny) and boyfriend Nick (Rob Mayes) behind in order to travel to Boston and pursue her dream. She works harder than she's ever worked in her life, in hopes of unseating nationals favorite Carrie Turner (Molly Oberstar) and making coach Aiden proud. Meanwhile she struggles to stay connected with Nick and make sense of who she really is and what she wants in life. A freak accident puts Lexi's future as a skater at risk but eventually leads her to look within to discover an inner strength she never knew she possessed. This film combines some of Marvin Hamlisch's most moving music from the original movie, including Best Original Song nominee "Through the Eyes of Love," with more contemporary music by David Williams. Olympic medalist Michelle Kwan makes a brief appearance in the film, as does NBC Olympics correspondent Andrea Joyce. Bonus content includes a 12-minute featurette on the making of the film, with interview footage of director Donald Wrye, actress Lynn-Holly Johnson (who played Lexi in the 1978 version), Taylor Firth, Molly Oberstar, Rob Mayes, choreographers David Wilson and Sandra Bezic, and many others. There are also four deleted scenes. While this remake lacks the impact of the original film, in part because it follows a host of powerful skating movies, including the original Ice Castles and the 2005 Ice Princess, this 2010 Ice Castles is nonetheless a powerful drama about following one's dreams and finding one's inner strength. (Ages 10 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

    As soon as the movie ended, my wife and I both commented that we liked this one FAR BETTER than the original.

    It is a great representation of the human spirit and the will to not just persevere but to meet your goals through whatever challenges we may face.

    Quite a few requests for this all week so I had to give it a screening try in the store - and it actually fared quite well. Overall, the rookie acting performances and beautiful professional skating made for a nice film with only a few cliches and a nice message.

    The story follows a young skater as she decides to compete, facing the usual obstacles of peer cat fighting, a long distance relationship, and personal sacrifices aggravated by a life changing disability. The topics get grazed over, sometimes too fast to have a huge emotional impact, but the ending success and competent young love story make for an enjoyable watch. The video quality is solid, and the 5.1 gets used more than one would think for a film like this. The supplements include:

    * Behind the scenes, 12:53 minutes. A thorough look into the production, skating/acting mixes, and other assorted material without delving too much into the original work.
    * Deleted scenes, play all option of 4 scenes totaling 6:38 minutes. All character stuff, which was too bad since this was her only acting performance, so all of the skating was left in the film.

    English, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Thai with subs in the same with some Chinese and Korean also. Feels a little Lifetime-ish but they did this remake just in time for the Olympics, enjoy.

    This movie is really moving. No sex, maybe one or two instances of language, and no attitude problems, other than a bout of depression on the main character's part after losing her eye-sight (who wouldn't?) Definitley some kissing (one time they tousle in the snow in a snow-fight, landing on top of each other), but clean other wise. It's really touching and a person who values a clean, beautiful, inspiring movie will love this. The theme song sung by Britt Nicole is beautiful (previous reviewer: off-key singing?? Not a chance, Britt Nicole nails it) and definitley one I'll buy. Will one day own this for sure. Special features include the preview for the 70's original. This spectacularly peaceful remake is more than just a remake, it's really the real-deal.

    I also saw the older version of this movie and I like this one better. It's such a heart-warming, tear-jerker movie that any caring person would love.

    This movie is very entertaining, especially for pre-teen and teen girls who like nice stories without the trash. I equate it to an "American Girl Movie" type of story and production. There is no bad language or inappropriate scenes in it. The plot and story are basically the same as the 1978 movie, but it is much "nicer" all around from the characters' appearances, language, and settings. I highly recommend it.

    After reading many of the reviews, I almost passed this movie by. I am a fan of the first Ice Castles so decided to give it a shot. I think the remake was well done. Yes, some of the backstory was omitted or slightly changed, but I did appreciate the transformation out of the 70's into the present.

    The acting was not exactly top-notch, nor was it in the original. The storyline still on the quirky side, but the skating footage is excellent and I still find it to be a good family movie!

    I just sat and watched both this version and the original with my almost 6 year old niece... let me rephrase that... I watched this one with her and the original alone. She loved this movie and so did I. She will totally be getting this for her birthday.

    I actually liked this version better than the original. It was easier to follow, had more focus on the skating, and was not as cheesy (yes, I do realize that's how it was back then) and opposed to many other remakes that add extra sex and swearing, this one had less... making it totally appropriate for young girls! She has told me numerous times that she would love to ice skate, and she was enamored with the girls on the ice.

    I can't wait to give it to her for her birthday in April! I only wish I could afford the skating lessons for her!!

    Updated:

    So, I gave her the movie for Easter. Her mom called tonight and said that they all watched it last night, and that this afternoon, all she has done is sit and fast forward to the parts where they are skating. Her mom asked if we knew of any place around here that gave lessons! I also gave her a pair of roller blades for her Birthday so she could start practicing. This movie and skating is ALL she talks about, and I can't wait to see her on the ice!

    I know a lot of people liked the original better than this remake, but I can't agree. The original had a lot of language, and isn't what I would call a family friendly film. This movie on the other hand has little language and is a sweeter story.

    The story is about Alexis Winston, a small town figure skater who has the ability to become a top notch skater. Alexis decides to leave her family and boyfriend Nick to pursue her dream of skating. Along the way she runs into some bumps, and learns the importance of a supporting family and a loving boyfriend.

    The music is beautiful, the skating is excellent, and the acting is good.Taylor Firth isn't the world's best actress, but I thought she did a pretty good job for her first acting role. Also, it was nice to have an ice skater play the main role because she could do all of her skating, and didn't need a stunt double. There are cameo appearances by Michelle Kwan and Andrea Joyce, who play commentators. I'll watch just about anything with Michelle Kwan in it!
