Remember your first experience at summer camp?
Once I was a Beehive is a lively telling of a young woman’s roller coaster experience dealing with lthe oss of a loved one, her newly blended family and her first year at girls camp. It will truly leave your heart doing flip-flops! It brought back so many delightful memories of my own summer camp experiences. Those experiences helped me find an inner strength I didn’t even know I had. I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
My daughter and I were honored to view the pre-screening of this AMAZING film Once I Was a Beehive when it was first released in theaters. There are some hilarious scenes that will literally make you laugh until your side hurts! You can purchase your very own copy now on DVD and Blu-Ray too!
A family movie that is ACTUALLY family-friendly!
Have you ever been to a movie and came out thinking “Well that was a really good movie, but I wish they would’ve left out the language or that one overly sensual scene etc.” I’m pretty sure most of us parents have at one time or another, felt that squeamish feeling while watching a movie with our kids, hoping they didn’t notice the foul language or slightly over-the-top love scene in that ‘so-called family movie’ everyone raved about.
That is one of the reasons I really appreciated this movie, not only did it have a great storyline, but it was TRULY family friendly! Something I find it so hard to find in most movies made nowadays.
I was even more excited to watch it knowing that the director was none other than Maclain Nelson, best known for his role in Saratov Approach where he played a Mormon missionary who was kidnapped while on his mission in Russia. (EXCELLENT movie as well!)
We got to meet up with Maclain and his wife Clare Niederpruem who played in the movie as one of the older, more experienced girls in the girls camp group and just recently made her directing debut for ‘Little Women’ which is now in theaters!
Interviewing a member of the cast and the director of Once I was a Beehive
We were thrilled to have the opportunity to conduct this interview and it was my daughter Lizzy’s very FIRST interview too! Clare was super sweet and so fun to interview; we could’ve talked to her for hours! She really put Lizzy at ease right away, sensing she was a little bashful at first. Both Clare and Maclain were so great with her!
Every good movie has a great soundtrack and this one is no exception!
I absolutely LOVE the ‘Once I was a Beehive soundtrack‘ and I would even consider it ‘road-trip-worthy’ music! (I’m pretty picky about my music selection for road trips too!)
Here’s a sample for your listening pleasure of the soundtrack than make sure to watch the movie trailers below and purchase your copy today!
