Touching yet funny, charming but unexpectedly deep.
20 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the few documentaries you'll want to watch more than once. Insightful and inspirational, the film will change your perceptions about magic as you lose yourself in the emotional journey of the next generation of people who create it. The dynamic counselors clearly care about both the campers and their craft, treating the campers as fellow magicians and not as children. Many of the kids are clever and precocious; they'll make you laugh despite yourself.

Particularly touching is one camper's struggle with Tourette's Syndrome and OCD, the side effects of which are revealed dramatically in the film. Magic seems to provide him with an miraculous escape from the reality of his struggles. This theme is echoed in touching detail in the stories of several other campers: a female magician, a dedicated Christian, a talented young man struggling with dyslexia and a gifted but direction-less older teen.

Shot, edited and scored so well you'll forget its a documentary and be shattered all over again as you realize the unscripted truth behind the magic of the story.

Intensely moving and unashamedly honest: I defy you not to cry.
