A compelling true story and fine performance from star Anna Camp elevate this otherwise middling TV movie. Camp is best known for her comedic roles in the Pitch Perfect series and Netflix's Desperados, so it's good to see her take on a more dramatic turn in 5000 Blankets. The film's script and structure are predictable, so it rests on Camp's shoulders to raise the film above that. Repetitive church scenes and attempts at visualizing mental illness risk undermining Camp's work, but ultimately this is a powerful and inspiring human story of finding self through serving others.
