A movie has just been made about the modern day Trek reenactments, and I've already watched the trailer four times since I first saw it this morning. It looks funny and spiritual. I am looking forward to watching TREK - the Movie with my family.
Written by Hollywood screenwriter David Howard and Jon Enos, and directed by Alan Peterson, TREK is a family comedy that follows a group of LDS teens as they stumble their way through the sagebrush looking for their pioneer heritage as well as their own testimonies. Watch as Tom, a young Mormon teenager and his friends try to smuggle in unsanctioned food, battle sibling rivalry, encounter a “special ops” Young Men's leader, ponder doctrinal brain teasers, and match wits with a Twinkie-loving skunk. Through all of the ups and downs, they are revealed to be “real” LDS youth who are struggling with real challenges—doubts, divorce, relationships. When they encounter unexpected trouble, their faith is tested much like their pioneer ancestors.
