Ice Princess

When this DVD showed up in the mail, I was surprised. It's rated G and the blurb said it was a variation on "ugly duckling," and I'm not sure why I'd pick that. But I wanted some background movie while I worked on the new cat blankie last night and I watched it.

A physics geek finds out she might get a scholarship for Harvard if she does a good enough presentation. She likes skating on the home pond and decides to figure out the physics of skating at the local rink. She's dissed by the skaters and their parents, but then as they get to know her, and she coaches them with what she's learned about the physics of skating, they start liking each other. It's actually a nice little movie with more complications than you'd expect from the blurb.
