POP STAR ON ICE (2009)

An unprecedented behind-the-scenes portrait of outspoken Olympian and three-time US Figure Skating Champion JOHNNY WEIR. Love him or hate him, Johnny is one of the most talented skaters of all time, but talent alone does not make a champion. His complicated relationship with his longtime coach Priscilla Hill and his struggle to reach the top of the sport takes us from small town Delaware – his training home – to competitions, shopping sprees, fashion shows and personal appearances around the world. The inspiration for Jon Heder’s character in the box office smash BLADES OF GLORY, Johnny seeks to balance his larger-than-life persona with the constraints of his sport. POP STAR ON ICE uncovers the graceful, athletic, cut-throat and melodramatic sport of figure skating through the prism of its most controversial athlete as he tries to fulfill his potential on the world stage.
