Felicity Jones(the mildly bucktoothed, or is it called an overbite?, star of "Northanger Abbey", "Brideshead Revisited") plays an ex-champion skateboarder, down on her luck, poor girl, Kim, who takes a job as a servant or chalet girl for the ultra rich- Bill Nighy, Brooke Shields- at their posh ski lodge.
Kim knows nothing of snow, but goes about trying to conquer it and learn to snowboard and perhaps win the local competition plus the love of the rich son, Ed Westwick.
There's a lot of if's and maybe's has she struggles to overcome a past tragedy, support her loving but worthless dad, deal with backstabbing cattiness, and, the obvious social class differences.
The filmmakers shoot some gorgeous outdoor skiing and snowboarding, but the true focus of the movie is the relationships. The comedy is lightweight but entertaining. It's not rated, but I would say PG-13 for some language and sexual innuendo; there's a hot tub nude scene made for laughs but with really no "nasty bits" shown- everything's covered up.
Turn up the volume to cut through some of the English accents. Good to watch after a day on the slopes or just when it's cold and snowy out and could use a little romance.
