Olivia Newton-John and Marc Jordan play the intellectual parents of a teenage hockey phenom who goes from obscurity to overwhelming fame in a matter of weeks. Their son, seventeen-year-old Farley, has led a sheltered life and was raised on a diet of home schooling, organic living and trips to the art gallery. To his parents’ dismay, Farley loves to play shinny with the local rink rats. To their even greater dismay, Farley is scouted and signed by the owner of a junior league team, where he becomes an instant star. But Farley discovers that stardom comes with a price—including the expectation to fight on the ice. Throw in a changing relationship with his best friend (Allie MacDonald), and Farley finds himself losing his way.
Score: A Hockey Musical was selected to be the opening gala film for the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival.
