Love on the slopes
If the recession swallowed your annual ski trip, you only have to buy a movie ticket to indulge in a snowy adventure. This story about a former skateboarding prodigy who becomes caretaker of a chalet in Austria and finds forbidden love is as warming and rewarding as a cup of hot chocolate after a day on the slopes. Bill Nighy is wonderfully dry as the rich chalet owner, and although you’ll have to put up with the puppy-eyed Westwick – and a burning desire to actually go on that alpine holiday – the vicarious ski trip will feel like time well spent.
