This movie promised much but delivered little. It tackles the disturbing subject of homophobic religious fundamentalists and their 'pray the gay away' concentration camps without ever delving too deeply into the psychological traumas that these programmes cause in their 'disciples'. The cast are excellent throughout, but too many of them are portraying peripheral characters that remain under-developed. The ending is vague and unsatisfying, and while leaving storylines unresolved can be a strength in some movies, it feels like a weakness here. I would have liked more. This book might have been better adapted for television.

"The Miseducation of Cameron Post" (2018 release; 90 min.) brings the story of Cameron. As the movie opens, we get to know Cameron, a 14 or 15 yr. old teenager. She is seen making out with her friend Coley. Later on, Cameron and Coley and their dates are going to the 1993 prom, but it's not long that Cameron and Coley sneak out. Alas, they are found making out, and before we know it, Cam's aunt Ruth is sending her to God's Promise, a gay conversion camp of sorts, to correct Cameron's same sex attractions (SSA) and "gender confusion"... At this point we're 10 min. into the movie but to tell you more of the plot would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.
Couple of comments: the movie is written and directed by Desiree Akhavan, who previously brought us "Appropriate Behaviour". The script is based on the book of the same name by Emily Danforth. I have not read the book, and hence I cannot comment how faithful the film remains to the book. The movie takes a critical look to the so-called gay conversion practice that exists in certain segments of the population. I don't know why the movie is set in 1993 specifically, but there are plenty of appropriate clues, including Cameron's cassette of the Breeders' The Last Splash, a Clinton/Gore sticker, etc. Chloe Grace Moretz brings yet another great (dare I say, kick-ass) performance as Cameron. Sasha Lane, on the other hand, is underused as one of Cameron's friends at God's Promise. There is plenty of good music in the film, including a nice original score from Julian Wass, and several great song placements. Imagine my surprise when in the movie's concluding scene, the Feelies come on with "When Company Comes", which is played in its entirety. Bottom line: while at times the movie feels a bit subdued, it nevertheless is a nice little film, and I can't wait to see what Desiree Akhavan will do next, as she is surely an up-and-coming directing talent.
"The Miseducation of Cameron Post" premiered at this year's Sundance film festival to positive acclaim. It recently opened at my local art-house theater here in Cincinnati. The Sunday early evening screening where I saw this at was attended poorly (exactly 4 people, including myself). That's unfortunate. If you are a fan of Chloe Grace Moretz, or simply are interested in a quality indie movie, I'd readily suggest you check it out, be it in the theater, on VOD, or eventually on DVD/Blu-ray, and draw your own conclusion.
But your preaching to the choir.
Cameron Post is a young woman discovering her sexuality when she is caught doing things unchristian like, so her family takes her to a camp that's met brainwash you into believing your something that your not. What's really messed up is at that young age she does not even know who she is and they are try to destroy it before she does.
It is a movie that gets me asking a lot of questions that I already know the answers to, but it's questions that always should be ask cause I feel that it does help with the process of tolerance in the world.
In the The Miseducation of Cameron Post we become educated, in a movie that does it in a fun and enjoyable matter, but I'm a bit biased cause I'm a huge fan of Chlo? Grace Moretz, who I thought was so fantastic as Cameron Post.
