Ice Castles Academy Award Nomination! 

By Tom Keogh

Not half-bad, this lightly engaging, potboiler romance concerns an ice skater (Lynn-Holly Johnson) who loses her vision in an accident but goes on to excel on the ice with the support of the guy (Robby Benson) who loves her. When she takes up with some rich schmuck, however, intertwining problems in her work and in love throw a shadow over everything. Nice performances, nice skating--the whole thing is a pleasant distraction.

Academy Awards

Ice Castles received an Academy Awards nomination for Best Song (Marvin Hamlisch, Carole Bayer Sager).

Your Memories Shared!

"The first time I watched Ice Castles was in the Awesome80s. It left such a great impression on me that, when I saw the DVD in the video store, I had to buy it. I cried again! This movie is so inspiring and heartwarming that I watch it when I'm on the treadmill. My favorite scene is when she skates the last time almost blind. The emotion on her boyfriends face is classic. I cried my eyes out. This is just an all around feel good Movie. Everyone should watch it at least once!"
