THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST

September 29 – October 4
THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST

From writer/director Desiree Akhavan and based on the celebrated novel by Emily M. Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post follows Cameron (Chloë Grace Moretz) as she is sent to a gay conversion therapy center after getting caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night. Run by the strict and severe Dr. Lydia Marsh (Jennifer Ehle) and her brother, Reverend Rick (John Gallagher Jr.)—himself an example of how those in the program can be “cured”—the center is built upon repenting for “same sex attraction.” In the face of intolerance and denial, Cameron meets a group of fellow sinners including the amputee stoner Jane (Sasha Lane), and her friend, the Lakota Two-Spirit, Adam (Forrest Goodluck). Together, this group of teenagers form an unlikely family as they fight to survive.
Dir: Desiree Akhavan / 2018 / US & UK / 90 min

“It’s not just about a queer person’s sexuality; it’s about a young woman’s-something rarely captured on film with such honesty or with such beauty as this.” – Katie Herzog, The Stranger

“Navigating troubled culture-war waters with grace, humor and compassion, The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a movie that deserves a wide and diverse audience.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times

“Beautifully articulates the need for young people to realize the validity of who they are, and even more beautifully crystalizes the moment when that starts to happen.” – David Ehrlich, IndieWire
