Ice Castles is a 1978 American romantic drama, starring Lynn-Holly Johnson and Robby Benson. It is the story of Alexis, a young figure skater, and her rise and fall from super stardom. Tragedy strikes when, following a freak accident, Lexie loses her sight, leaving her to hide away in the privacy of her own despair. She eventually perseveres and begins competing in figure skating again. The work was filmed on location in Colorado and Minnesota. It made famous Melissa Manchester's hit song, "Through the Eyes of Love."(wikipedia) On a personal note...I have to admit this was my favorite movie when I was a kid, but no one I work with has seen it or heard of it... so here it is! The screenplay holds up pretty well and I still tear up at the end. Oh, and what a beautiful score by Marvin Hamlisch, esp. the underscoring. Enjoy.
