Ice King, The (12A)


Documentary of a lost cultural icon, a story of art, sport, sexuality, and rebellion.

The critical consensus

Where the film does succeed is in underlining its subject’s credentials as an artist.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 14/02/2018

Touching and triumphant documentary celebrating British ice skating legend John Curry.

****(*)Matthew Turner, The List, 19/02/2018

Beautiful and graceful, but just a little bit too cold.

***(*)(*)Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 23/02/2018

This respectful film charts the career and dreams of an Olympic champion who escaped the homophobia of his 70s heyday.
