High school student Cameron Post (Chloë Grace Moretz) seems to fit in perfectly with her conservative community, until she’s caught in the back seat of a car with another girl. Cameron is shipped off to a religious conversion therapy center where she’s subjected to
outlandish discipline and “de-gaying” methods. But the center also
unexpectedly provides a community she can connect with. Through
its stellar cast and thoughtful direction, The Miseducation of Cameron
Post
tells its coming-of-age story with wit and compassion.

Chloë Grace Moretz puts in a career-best turn as a teen sent to ‘pray away the gay’ at a Christian camp in Desiree Akhavan’s compassionate LGBT story. Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian

This is a lovely, richly shaded portrait of adolescence in all its shifting moods, shot through with a melancholy sweetness and sly, intoxicating humour. Edward Lawrenson, The Big Issue

The sort of film that stays with you. Powerful in its restraint, and
unfailingly full of light.
Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies
