Program Notes

From writer/director Desiree Akhavan (Appropriate Behavior) and based on the celebrated novel by Emily M. Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post follows the titular character (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 (Ehle) and her brother, Reverend Rick (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 (Lane), and her friend, the Lakota Two-Spirit, Adam (Goodluck). Together, this group of teenagers form an unlikely family and fight to survive.

 

5/5 STARS:
“A gripping and sad drama that puts a tremendous amount of faith in its performers.” — Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian

“A humble, poignant, and extremely touching coming-of-age drama.” — David Ehrlich, IndieWire

“Akhavan elicits finely layered performances from her cast. Moretz digs deeper than she has in years for a sensitive lead turn that harmonizes especially well with her co-stars.” — Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter

 

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival
