Much better than I expected
16 January 2012 | by runamokprodsSee all my reviews

Five minutes in I thought 'I'm going to hate this movie'. It seemed like it was just going to be a documentary of cutesy moments of kids at camp. But a bunch of good reviews led me to it, and by halfway in I understood why.

As these kids (and their counselors) come into focus as human beings it actually becomes a moving memory of childhood – it's joys, but also it's confusions, pains, hurts and loses. That doesn't mean it's a down-beat movie. Ultimately it's vibe is positive, but it's not a Pollyanna kind of positive view of childhood. It gets just how life is bittersweet, even (or especially?) when you're 10 years old.
