Movie Review: Once I Was a Beehive
This movie was surprisingly good. It is about a group of young women, and their leaders, who struggle with accepting each other, and in the end find much more than the bargained for as they begin to work together. It is about Young Women's Camp. It is strange the effect this camp can have on testimony. Berta Heiner portrays one of the camp directors. I have enjoyed her work in Mormon movies. Claire Neiderpruem portrays a young woman, Bree, whose father dies of cancer. She is not Mormon, but reluctantly goes to camp with her new step cousin who is a Beehive. Hailey Smith portrays the youth director, who becomes a rival to Bree. You add some handsome local rangers, and a bear, and you have a pretty fun camp. This movie is written and directed by Maclain Nelson.
