We’re excited to let you know that on Thursday August 27th, Books of Wonder is inviting readers and movie lovers to join screenwriter-director Cornelia Duryée Moore (Madeleine L’Engle’s goddaughter) and co-producer Charlotte Jones Voiklis (Madeleine L’Engle’s granddaughter) for an informal chat as they talk, with some authority, about Madeleine L’Engle and illustrate their discussion with a screening of clips from CAMILLA DICKINSON, engage in Q & A, and sign DVDs. A hardcover edition of the book is your gift with purchase (limited to the first 20 customers who purchase the DVD or any of Madeleine L’Engle’s hardcover books). We may even have a surprise guest or two from the cast! If you’re in New York City, we hope you can come!
CAMILLA DICKINSON will be available on multiple platforms — digital video-on-demand and DVD — on August 25th (and is available for pre-order now!)
Fifteen-year-old Camilla Dickinson (Adelaide Clemens) has led a sheltered life on the Upper East Side with her architect father (Cary Elwes) and beautiful, but fragile mother (Samantha Mathis).
But when her parents’ marriage begins to fall apart, Camilla finds herself caught in the middle. Her mother doesn’t want her to grow up and treats her like a child, while her father is cold and forbidding. Camilla’s friendship with Luisa (Colby Minifie) offers some escape from her stifling parents, but Luisa has problems with her own parents, both of whom are alcoholic. When Camilla meets Luisa’s older brother Frank (Gregg Sulkin), an unlikely friendship is formed, and she finds herself increasingly drawn to him. Rebellious, perhaps even a bit dangerous, and different from anyone she has ever known, Frank introduces Camilla to a world outside her sheltered apartment walls.
As their relationship deepens, Camilla and Frank realize that their parents can’t help them grow up, so they must help each other. Together they discover that the future is in their own hands.
The film also stars Margaret Colin, Robert Picardo, Camryn Manheim, and Salvator Xuereb.
Oh, and here is a wonderful article by Margaret Willey that discusses why Camilla is a great story.
