Cinnamon is a heartwarming movie from 2011 that tells the story of a teenage girl named Kate Weston, played by Ashley Leggat, who dreams of being a champion figure skater but is held back by her lack of confidence. Her father, played by Greg Evigan, is a struggling actor who is always away from home, leaving Kate to feel neglected and unsupported.

One day, while attending a local Christmas festival, Kate meets a stray dog that she names Cinnamon. Despite her initial reluctance to keep the dog, Kate soon falls in love with Cinnamon's loyal and playful nature. As Kate trains for an upcoming skating competition, she begins to include Cinnamon in her routines, and the dog becomes an integral part of her act.

Meanwhile, Kate's father lands a job in a popular TV show and starts spending more time at home, providing Kate with the support she needs to succeed in her skating career. Kate also befriends a fellow skater named Gwen, played by Ciara Bravo, who encourages her to believe in herself and never give up on her dreams.

However, things take a turn for the worse when Cinnamon is taken away from Kate by the local animal control due to a complaint from a mean-spirited neighbor. Determined to get Cinnamon back, Kate puts her skating dreams on hold and embarks on a frantic search for her beloved dog.

The rest of the movie is a touching and emotional journey as Kate tries to find Cinnamon and reunite with her before the skating competition. Along the way, she learns the value of perseverance, friendship, and family and discovers that sometimes the most important goal in life is not winning, but simply doing what makes us happy.

Cinnamon is a family-friendly movie that has all the ingredients to make you smile, laugh, and even shed a tear. The acting is superb, with each character bringing depth and nuance to their roles. Cynthia Gibb shines as Kate's skating coach, providing a strong and supportive presence that helps Kate develop her skills and confidence.

The cinematography is also noteworthy, with stunning shots of ice skating routines and winter landscapes that add to the movie's charm and magic. And of course, the real star of the movie is Cinnamon, whose boundless energy, loyalty, and cuteness will steal your heart from the first scene.

Overall, Cinnamon is a feel-good movie that is perfect for anyone who loves dogs, ice skating, or simply enjoys a heartwarming story about overcoming obstacles and following your dreams. It's a movie that will leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling, and a smile that will last long after the credits roll.
