Storyline
17-year-old physics whiz Casey Carlyle is urged by her physics teacher to work on a physics project over the summer for presentation to Harvard. As a skater, Casey decides on a project that shows the elements of physics applied in competitive figure skating. To start, she visits a skating club run by former professional skater Tina Harwood. Casey eventually finds that in order to better understand the principles she's using, she will have to become her own test subject, and joins the skating school. The more she gets involved, the more she falls in love with figure skating….and must ultimately make a choice; Will it be Harvard – which her mother and Casey have both dreamed of, or will it be her new dream – as a competitive figure skater?

User Review

Terrific movie

Rating: 10/10


I loved this movie, and I don't know why the other reviewer did not.
Maybe said reviewer was not accustomed to viewing Disney movies, which
are generally cleaner and more family-oriented. The star of the film
worked her hardest against all obstacles to accomplish her goals and
realize her dreams, without throwing away her intelligence. She learned
that intelligence is not a burden, as it is often portrayed, but a gift
that can possibly be applied to many other areas of life. The main
character was a well-developed character, as were the supporting
characters, and the soundtrack was excellent. I truly enjoyed this
movie, and it was a joy to watch. I shall hope to see it again before
it is released on DVD.
