Based on the celebrated novel by Emily M. Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post follows the titular character (Chloë Grace Moretz, Let Me In, Kick-Ass) 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 (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 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 (Sasha Lane, American Honey), and her friend, the Lakota Two-Spirit, Adam (Forrest Goodluck, The Revenant). Together, this group of teenagers form an unlikely family and fight to survive. Directed and co-written by Desiree Akhaven (Appropriate Behavior, “The Slope”).
