"Camp"

If you were a drama geek in high school or if (like me) your earliest musical memory involved show tunes, then you should see "Camp". It is the story of a theater summer camp where kids escape being picked on by parents and classmates and enjoy two months of being appreciated for their talents. The flow of the storyline is a bit jerky; it reminds me of those old-fashioned comedians who do 1-2 jokes (setup, then punchline). Ignore the tired plot; the true reason to rent this is the musical performances. I identified strongly with the kids in this movie because I was a kid who was drawn to the emotion behind every song. I feel music much too deeply for a woman who can't sing :-).
