This film captures the passion, the angst, the joys and the perils of growing into -- and getting through -- adolescence through the prism of "Magic Camp," to which teens go during the summer for magic immersion. It is whimsical, heartbreaking and hilarious. There are moments when you are completely uncertain where the film is going - you are introduced to characters who you follow throughout their Magic Camp stays and each of the kids has their own trajectory and personal story. Some kids go to camp because they feel socially isolated and find magic to be the only way they can comfortably feel okay in their own skins; others seem more socially adept and view magic as a compelling, albeit somewhat obsessive, component of their lives. But for all these kids, it is the passion and love they have for what they do that makes the film so "magical."
