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...

An Improvement on the Usual Romance, Sports Movie
30 August 2014 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

Chalet Girl on its surface and overall plot outline is predictable as is the romance drama plays out with poor girl with a promising sports future until tragedy befalls her but finds opportunity in the land of the rich along with both comedic and dramatic challenges. Yet somewhere in between the direction and script are smart, at times underplayed for both serious and comedic affect. Chalet Girl takes the ordinary and formulaic theme and breezes through with a fun, entertaining, and rich plainness that makes this movie involving and captivating. There are some sight gags that are performed perfectly by Felicity Jones and both the social contrast and the wonderful scenic landscape come together to offer up a wonderland of Cinderella magic.

There are shades of the simple but involving plot of Under the Tuscan Sun (2003) and the pleasant lightness of romance comedy-drama of Music and Lyrics (2007).
