The Miseducation of Cameron Post
CAST: Chloe Grace Moretz, Forrest Goodluck, Quinn Shephard, Sasha Lane DIRECTOR: Desiree Akhavan
Cameron Post looks the part of a perfect high school girl. But after she's caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night, Cameron is quickly shipped off to a conversion therapy center that treats teens "struggling with same-sex attraction." At the facility, Cameron is subjected to outlandish discipline, dubious "de-gaying" methods, and earnest Christian rock songs-but this unusual setting also provides her with an unlikely gay community. For the first time, Cameron connects with peers, and she's able to find her place among fellow outcasts.
It is a film about teenagers but not what you would expect a teenage film to be; instead it gives heart and a voice to those who are subjected to opinions and values that threaten to affect their future.Linsey Satterthwaite, Film Inquiry
This is a film about Cameron's core personhood, and how it stands up to concentrated efforts to transform it, and it's told with quiet steeliness and grace.David Sims, The Atlantic
