Pretty tomboy Kim (Felicity Jones) used to be a champion skateboarder, but now she flips burgers to support herself and her dad. Opportunity comes knocking when she flukes a winter-long catering job in one of the plushest ski chalets in the Alps. At first, Kim is baffled by this bizarre new world of posh people, vintage champagne, epic mountains and waist deep powder. Then Kim discovers snowboarding, and her natural talent soon sees her training for the end-of-season competition, with a chance to win major prize money. But before she can become a champion again, Kim needs to overcome her deepest fears - and figure out what's going on with Jonny (Ed Westwick), her boss' handsome but apparently unavailable son.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Pleasant if timid...Rachel Saltz, New York Times, 10.13.2011
A chirpy, tween-skewing, snowboarding-themed romantic comedy.Leslie Felperin, Variety, 09.13.2011
Hot Dog... The Movie and its disreputable ski-comedy ilk might have been a low point in cinema history, but at least their unbridled crassness had energy; Chalet Girl embraces similar '80s tropes for a lethargic you-go-girl fairy tale.Nick Schager, Village Voice, 10.11.2011
Chalet Girl is possibly the first British rom com since Working Title's heyday that won't make you want to stick pins in your eyes, will actually make you laugh, and wasn't made by Working Title.Sophie Ivan, Film4, 03.16.2011
