Story by Meg Cabot and Hadley Davis. Screenplay by Hadley Davis. Directed by Tim Fywell.
Brainy, awkward high-school student Casey Carlyle (Michelle Trachtenberg) has never quite fit in. Casey
is caught between her fantasy of becoming a championship figure skater and her strong-willed mother
(Joan Cusack), who has her on the fast track to Harvard. She can only watch as Gen (Hayden Panettiere),
Nikki (Kirsten Olson) and Tiffany (Jocelyn Lai), three elite skating prodigies, ruthlessly compete on the
U.S. Figure Skating circuit. Casey, a science whiz, studies the physics of skating, but when she gets the
chance to train with the skating team’s coach (Kim Cattrall), a disgraced former skating champion who
also happens to be Gen’s mom, she learns that she may have real skating ability if she trains hard.
In order to pursue her dream, she must defy the strict expectations her mother has set for her. Now, with
only the support of Gen’s hunky, Zamboni-driving teenage brother (Trevor Blumas), Casey takes on the
challenge of her life when she finds herself competing against the best to make it into the championship
circuit and become a real “ice princess.”
<b>ICE PRINCESS</b> features a cool soundtrack with songs from Caleigh Peters, Aly & A.J., Jewel, Michelle
Branch, Tina Sugandh, Raven-Symoné, Jesse McCartney, Madonna and more.
