Newsbites: Camp Out! License to Wed!

Just a couple new items here.

1. From IndieWIRE‘s report on the Cleveland International Film Festival, which just wrapped a few days ago:

Although the film did not pick up an official prize, Kirk Marcolina and Larry Grimaldi‘s delightful doc “Camp Out” was an unqualified hit with our jury. The film chronicles a group of gay Christian youth as they attend a camp in rural Minnesota. The first of its kind in the United States, the camp is a retreat for gay and lesbian teenagers who want to openly explore their faith in an accepting atmosphere. While the camp’s concept is unique in this country, it is the teens featured in the movie that makes the film a particularly winning experience. Grimaldi was also pleased with his experience at CIFF.

2. Cinematical reports that Robin Williams will play a minister in License to Wed, starring Mandy Moore, who has already done the church thing in A Walk to Remember (2002) and Saved! (2004; my review): “Williams plays the minister at Moore’s character’s church, who refuses to perform her wedding ceremony unless she and her husband take and pass a prenup class. Needless to say, they don’t pass, it’s the boy’s fault, and they breakup. Don’t worry, though – they get back together . . . and everything is lovely.”
