The Miseducation of Cameron Post
Opens August 10, 2018
Chloë Grace Moretz stars in Desiree Akhavan's poignant indie drama about three gay teens who meet at a dubious conversion therapy camp in the 1990s, where they refuse to "pray the gay away" and instead accept themselves for who they are.
Desiree Akhavan's second feature may take place in the recent past, but its relevance is all too real. It's 1993, and Cameron (Chloë Grace Moretz) is in trouble-discovered having sex with her girlfriend in the back of a car outside of her homecoming dance, she's now the newest "disciple" at God's Promise, a gay conversion camp in upstate New York. "There's no such thing as homosexuality," program director Dr. Lydia Marsh (Jennifer Ehle) intones during one of Cameron's first therapy sessions, "only the same struggle with sin we all face." Cameron does her best to dodge such religion-based lessons and finds solace in her fellow disciples.
