What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Ice Girls is a feel-good movie about competitive girls' figure skating, focusing on good sportsmanship, perseverance in the face of injury, and encouraging versus demoralizing parenting styles. A single mom struggles to raise her two girls when her finances crumble. She's too proud to accept help until generous family and friends reach out with financial and moral support. "Crap" is mentioned. Adults drink wine. Thugs try to shake down a teenager whose dad owes them money. A skater misses a jump and slams into a wall, sustaining an injury that keeps her off the ice for months. A skater's bruised feet are shown. A doctor prepares to inject Botox into a woman's face. That woman later suggests that her figure skater daughter have some, too, to give her face a more relaxed and judge-pleasing look while competing.
