The many admirers of Anna Kendrick in Pitch Perfect might want to cast their minds back to 2003’s Camp, written and directed by Todd Graff, who went on to Bandslam and Joyful Noise. She’s among a group of misfits put on a show in the Catskills, and there’s a smart Off-Broadway sensibility on show, right down to some clever insider jokes and a cameo from Stephen Sondheim. Arriving too early to be part of the Glee/High School Musical wave of films about cheerful wannabes, Camp is considerably deeper than both, and has a number of lively numbers from a capable young cast.
