Parent & Baby Screening: The Miseducation of Cameron Post (15)

The Miseducation of Cameron Post

Told with wit, compassion, and a generosity of spirit, Desiree Akhavan's second feature tells the story of Cameron Post, a typical American teen, who's sent to a gay conversion camp.

Cameron Post (Chloë Grace Moretz) 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 centre 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.

Writer/director Desiree Akhavan (Appropriate Behavior) and co-writer Cecilia Frugiuele sensitively adapt Emily Danforth’s acclaimed eponymous coming-of-age novel and create a refreshingly original teen movie.
