FILM GUIDE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST
When teenage Cameron (Chloë Grace Moretz) is caught having sex with another girl on prom night, she is shipped off to God's Promise, a middle-of-nowhere treatment center run by Dr. Lydia Marsh (Jennifer Ehle) and "success story" Reverend Rick (John Gallagher, Jr.). They subject her to dubious gay conversion therapies—but, despite these “treatments,” Cameron eventually forges a community with her fellow teens, quietly defiant Jane Fonda (Sasha Lane) and Adam Red Eagle (Forrest Goodluck). Together, these misfits play at recovery, since their only way out is time.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival and based on the acclaimed novel of the same title, The Miseducation of Cameron Post overflows with standout performances and unforgettable characters in a story that is equal parts coming coming-of-age drama and teen hangout movie.
