Movie Info

Set against the splendor of the Winter Olympic Games, an intimate and unexpected love story develops between two lonely hearts, each at their own crossroads in life. Penelope (Alexi Pappas) is a first time Olympian and introverted cross-country skier, who, after finishing her event early on in the games, finds herself spending time in Athletes Village with the gregarious and outgoing volunteer dentist, Ezra (Nick Kroll). While both are eager to form connections at the Olympic Games, they are held back by the very thing that has propelled them to this point; what do you do once your lifelong dream has come true, and you're faced with taking the next step? As Penelope and Ezra navigate the vulnerable slopes, they push one another to embrace qualities they lost sight of in pursuit of their dreams. Will they be able to help each other take of leap of faith into the unknown? The first movie ever filmed on location during the Olympics in Athletes Village, OLYMPIC DREAMS offers audiences a never-before-seen side of the Games and the people whose entire lives are shaped by them.

The engaging "Olympic Dreams" plays like "Lost in Translation" at the Winter Games.

The story of how Olympic Dreams got made is more compelling than the movie itself.

February 14, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

"Olympic Dreams" is a wispy, quasi-romantic dramedy whose affecting moments are eclipsed by its overly random, sometimes awkwardly played and constructed narrative.

February 13, 2020 | Full Review…

What if instead of the drama of athletes risking life, limb and loss for their countries, the Olympic Games set the scene for a run-of-the-mill romantic comedy? Such is the premise of "Olympic Dreams."

It's almost painfully obvious that the film's dialogue was improvised during shooting; everyone constantly looks and sounds just a bit anxious, as if they're under significant pressure to come up with something interesting to say.

February 12, 2020 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Jeremy Teicher's offbeat charmer is an artful mix of documentary-style realism and wistful romanticism.
