So massive thank you and shout out to our friends at Westfield who have a full on 6 screenings of Chalet Girl today!
Here is how they are panning out…
So if you manage to go to or are planning to go to any of these then let us know and tell us what you thought of it! Especially if you were over at the cinema at 10.40am as well then you are my hero. What a way to start the day!
THERE are some films that seem to court low expectations. And with Chalet Girl (“a SNOW-mantic comedy!” according to its vein- opener of a poster), mine were closer to the ground than a sausage dog’s dangling bits.
The signs were not good. Not only is it directed by the chump who foisted Sandra Bullock’s disastrous All About Steve on the world but its opening scene contains cameos from two Wrigley’s Extra-toothed goons off T4.
Yet, unexpectedly, Chalet Girl is a proper delight. It’s exactly the kind of funny, sunshiny, teen-skewed romcom that Britain normally struggles to make. There’s no “message” – just great performances from a talented, good- looking cast, and more charm and humour than both Bridget Jones movies put together.
In a potentially star-making turn, Felicity Jones plays Kim, a 19-year-old skateboarder who takes a summer job working for a couple of hee-hawing poshos (Bill Nighy and Brooke Shields) at their Austrian holiday home. Also working there is upper-class lass Georgie, played by St Trinian’s star Tamsin Egerton. She shows a real flair for comedy in this that I’ve not seen before – possibly cos all I’ve seen her in is St Trinian’s.
Class-clash high jinks unfold – as does romance, when Kim falls for her bosses’ hunky but taken son Jonny (Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick). AND there’s a big snowboarding competition to worry about. Can Kim scoop first place and a good man?
Well – this is a romcom so the outcome is predictable, but the sharp script and top cast sell it with ease.
So if you’re after a frothy, non-challenging night at the flicks, fear not, Alp is at hand.
And on reflection, that’s even worse than “snow-mantic”. Sorry.
Its friday!!! And what a day it is today we have not only seen Ed Westwick eating Jam doughnuts and getting all sticky for Red Nose Day but I also have managed to get a hold of our Director all the way over in LA and grab a few thoughts on how it was for him to be shooting Chalet Girl in the mountains earlier this year.
If you are interested in hearing his side of the story then click on the ‘Interview with Cast & Crew’ and you will find new pictures as well.
Coming up with have interviews with Tamsin Egerton, Felicity Jones & Bill Nighy so keep coming back to see when we will be feeding you more content on the run up to release!!!
