Camp Rock (2008)
Teen pop idols the Jonas Brothers make their feature debut in Disney's CAMP ROCK, a Cinderella tale with a rock & roll twist. Golden-voiced, working-class beauty Mitchie Torres (Demi Lovato) has only one desire: to spend the summer at Camp Rock, a prestigious musical retreat for budding stars. The wish is granted when her mom gets a job as the camp's cook, but in order to join the ranks of the popular girls, she must obscure her less-than-regal roots. As the summer wears on, Mitchie is torn between who she is and who she's pretending to be, an artistic crisis of identity that endears her to the similarly-conflicted boy band superstar, Shane Gray (Joe Jonas). United by the desire to sing from the heart, Mitchie and Shane help one another discover their true selves, and together pave an honest road to pop success.
