So its Sunday of the opening weekend of Chalet Girl… I am hearing amazing, superb and overwhelmingly nice things from all the fans and have all my fingers, toes… legs… eyes? Crossed for a successful opening weekend =)
But I want to hear more on what you thought!!! Which track on the soundtrack is your favourite… as you know you can now listen to all the songs from the movie on Spotify, which is ace! So pop over to our facebook and click the shared link to add it to your accounts.
Also who is your favourite character… personally its a tough choice for me as I wouldnt want to upset any of my new and amazing mates but….. if I was truely honest I think Nicholas Braun is just tooooo funny! I wont even tell you what his jokes translate as in the German dubbed film, its enough to cover your ears!
Anyway thanks so much if you have been, are going or have got a massive group together as we really can not wait to discover just how much LOVE is out there for our film and are looking forward to some good figures (we hope) come monday morning!
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!!!
