National Canadian Film Day - Score: A Hockey Musical

National Canadian Film Day 2024

Not your average film about hockey, nor your average musical, Score delivers loads of action, laughs and romance. Seventeen-year-old Farley (Noah Reid) has the stick-handling skills of the next Sidney Crosby – not that Farley has any idea who Crosby is.  

He’s led a sheltered life, home-schooled by parents (Olivia Newton-John and Marc Jordan) whose idea of extra-curricular activities are trips to an art gallery or an ashram.

His only real friend is Eve (Allie MacDonald), the girl who’s lived next door nearly his entire life. Much to the dismay of his parents, Farley loves to play shinny with the local rink rats (Dave Bidini and Hawksley Workman, among others). When the coach of a local hockey team (Stephen McHattie) spots him, Farley is drawn into the seductive hockey arena – while trying to stay true to his non-violent principles and juggling an ever-changing relationship with Eve.
