After experiencing trouble finding a distributor even after winning the Grand Jury Prize – 2018 Sundance Film Festival (U.S. Dramatic Competition), The Miseducation of Cameron Post will be released this August courtesy of FilmRise.
While we have been seeing more queer content being produced, especially on the small screen, most of it (especially movies) revolve around the male experience. That’s why I am excited to finally watch The Miseducation of Cameron Post, because it tells the story of a young girl coming to terms with her sexuality.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Based on the celebrated novel by Emily M. Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post
follows the titular character (Chloë Grace Moretz) as she is sent to a gay conversion therapy center after getting caught having sex with the prom queen. Run by the strict 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 populated by teens “struggling with same-sex attraction.” In the face of outlandish discipline, dubious methods, and earnest Christian rock songs, Cameron forms an unlikely gay community, including the amputee stoner Jane (Sasha Lane) and the Lakota Two-Spirit, Adam (Forrest Goodluck). In creating a family on her own terms, she learns what it means to empower herself and have confidence in her identity.
