YES! YES! YES! (updated!)

I found this on Sera Beak's blog and HAD to share. I haven't felt so good for AGES.



This is the link to the movie. (It's only playing in a few places. There is a place on their website where you can help them get more screenings of the movie!!)

UPDATE: I just found this too:

Where was this camp when I was young???If there had been atleast a few people around me telling me I was great back then, it may not have taken me so many years to realise!

Claire said...

Meg, this IS awesome! My niece went to Rock Camp in Portland (I think it is the original one) last summer, and she is signed up again this summer. It truly is an amazing experience. We went to the final performance not expecting to be blown away but we WERE. And it is about so much more than just rock and roll. I didn't know there was a movie. Yay!

i remembered laini talking about this camp and how wonderful it sounded...but to get to peek into the changing experience like this - that is fantastic!
thanks for sharing this meg! this made me smile with joy and hope!

I too, got so teary watching this. How many of us have been silenced? This is just awesome...on so many levels! I am the mom of a little girl who ROARS! I don't ever want her to feel she needs to be quiet and be a 'good' girl.

Girls DO rock!

I saw that trailer the other day, too, and was telling my 10-year-old niece about it at Easter dinner. I want to take her to see it.
