Skating to New York: Brief Review

Skating to New York, directed by Charles Minsky (2013), is a film about the journey of a young man, with a group of his friends, skating across Lake Ontario. It is a light stakes adventure that offers some mishaps and conflict but nothing below the surface. It mainly focuses on the life of one boy, how he’s dealing with his emotions, and how he goes through the journey with his friends while mostly skating across Lake Ontario to New York. They have fun and face obstacles along the way that help them grow together. I enjoyed it. It was a mindless adventure. I didn’t think anything grave would happen even though they faced two serious situations that could have had serious consequences in real life and in most other movies. I probably won’t watch again but it wasn’t a grueling experience.
