Chalet Girl
What it's about:

Pretty tomboy Kim Matthews, 19, used to be a champion skateboarder, but now she's stuck in a dead-end job, trying to support her Dad. Opportunity comes knocking in the form of a catering job in the one of the most exclusive chalets in the Alps. At first, Kim's baffled by this bizarre new world of posh people, champagne and skiing, but then she discovers snowboarding, and the chance to win some much-needed prize money at the big end-of-season competition. Before she can become a champion again, Kim's going to have to dig deep to overcome her fears. Hard enough, without the complicating factor of Jonny, her handsome - though spoken-for - boss.

What the critics thought:

"A fluffy little romcom that could have been better, but will do nicely until something more daring comes along."
- Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail


"It's steered to success - just - by Felicity Jones, a natural, likeable everygirl who will make you care, possibly against your will, about a story as old as the Alps."
- Matthew Leyland, Total Film


"This movie's resemblances to Pretty Woman are a bit worrying."
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

A pretty tomboy gets to work at an exclusive ski resort in the Alps.

Every Thing Will Be Fine is a gorgeously assembled piece of art that fails hopelessly to work as a compelling film. Read More »
