G
Ice Princess is the 2005 family film from Walt Disney Pictures. Casey Carlyle (Michelle Trachtenberg), a high school senior, a serious student, who is working to get a Harvard scholarship to study Physics. There is a pond at her rural home, and during the winter enjoys very casual skating around the frozen pond. Her teacher advises her to do a Physics project to bolster her chances, and he suggests she personalize it. So she gets the very bright idea to apply Physics to ice skaters in her town. Tina (Kim Cattrall) is the former competitive figure skater and high-strung coach of her daughter Gen (Hayden Panettiere) and several others getting ready for competition. Casey shows up with video camera, to begin doing some motion studies, but Tina accuses her of spying. So Casey uses a new approach -- she will take lessons from Tina, and use her own skating as her Physics project. But Casey has talent she didn't realize, and in competition places well enough to move on. Her mother must learn to accept her decision to postpone college and see how far she can go in skating with proper training.moreless

    You can feel this niche-marketed tweener fantasy of athletic glory frantically trying to balance a decent sense of values against a market-savvy awareness.

    I love this movie and Michelle just rocks as Casey. So much emotion and dedication make this a stellar performance and the story is just great. This is one of my alltime faves and I have seen it about fifty times now. Keep up the great work, Michelle!
