    thriller with 'skating mother from hell' theme airs on IFC

    Based on my standing order for 'skating, ' my tivo automatically scheduled itself to record "American Venus" on June 1at 3:35pm PDT - airing on IFC, the Independent Film Channel. It also plays on June 2 at 2:00am PDT.

    I never heard of this movie but it might be amusing...or or or or

    Plot synopsis:
    Celia Lane (Rebecca De Mornay, “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle,” “And God Created Woman”) is an uncompromising coach pushing her figure-skating daughter Jenna (Jane McGregor, “Robson Arms”) toward an Olympic gold medal. But after Jenna blows it in an important national competition, she becomes fed up with the sport and with her demanding, abusive mother and runs away to Vancouver. The gun-toting Celia immediately heads across the border to find Jenna and put her back on the path to Olympic glory. She won’t be denied in her quest, even though Jenna’s father is keeping the girl’s location secret and the Canadian police have confiscated Celia’s weapon.
    Tres dramatique, non?

    I so want to see this movie! It sounds fabulously camp! I'm not even being sarcastic! There's nothing like watching Rebecca De Mornay abuse her talent.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    I don't get this channel It sounds totally trashy and like something I need to watch in a train wreck sort of way.

    Well that's a relief. I thought for a moment the cinematography would be done by Marina's husband.
