Spring 2019: The Miseducation of Cameron Post
Originally screened: February 6, 2019
Director: Desiree Akhavan
Country: United States
Runtime: 90 minutes
Cameron (Chloë Grace Moretz) and her guardian, aunt Ruth (Kerry Butler), are at an impasse. Ruth, after hearing a prom-night story, wants to "save" her niece by sending her to a gay conversion therapy camp. The tale, familiar to some, of attempted ex-gay treatment is here expanded into a wider tapestry of adult-child tensions, where shame and desire struggle underneath the surface of every interaction.
