Chalet Girl ★★★☆☆

"Felicity Jones is outstanding"

An intrinsically British Rom-com which somehow manages to transcend the stale, formulaic approach of the genre, Chalet Girl (starring up-and-coming British actress Felicity Jones) hides a quite charming story behind its hideously cheap and schmaltzy facade

Following the tragic death of her mother, former pro skateboarder Kim (Felicity Jones) sacrifices her promising career in order to take care of her unemployed father (Bill Bailey). Her part time summer job working in one of London’s numerous rundown fried chicken restaurants has somehow become her full time job and the realisation soon hits that her life is going nowhere fast


Instant Score: 3/5
Retrospective Score: 3/5
Total: 6/10
