Before we’re ready to move onto Jessica Darling’s last year of high school, Emily and I would like to leave you with some camp-related recommendations:
Huge — I already recommended this, but this ABC Family drama is so amazing that I still get sad thinking about its early cancellation. Please watch it and then gchat me about it for forever.
Notes on Camp — This was the first This American Life that I ever listened to and it’s still one of my favorites. It really captures what is uniquely “summer camp.”
Moonrise Kingdom — This Wes Anderson movie is so beautiful that I want it to wallpaper my apartment. For Halloween, I dressed up like Sam and my friend dressed like Suzy; we were so adorable. Maybe my favorite of Anderson’s films, the camp site that the two set up is summer-romance perfection.
Camp – The tagline for this movie is a comedy about drama. It’s not something I would call good, but I will say that it really earns its title. And the musical numbers are incredible.
Wet Hot American Summer – If you haven’t seen this movie, you must correct that situation immediately. It’s hilarious and the cast goes on for days: Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, and that’s just scratching the surface.
Camp Fielding a prestigious, invite-only camp that is supposed to turn problem children into prodigies. Is their program revolutionary? Or is something more sinister going on?
