“It might be the highest compliment to say that the film version does not at all feel compromised in the transfer to screen; it tones nothing down.” – Kent Turner, SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

“The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a scrapbook made by the people who were there.” – Ty Burr, BOSTON GLOBE

Cameron Post (Chloë Grace Moretz) looks the part of a perfect high school girl. But after she’s caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night, Cameron is quickly shipped off to a conversion therapy centre that treats teens “struggling with same-sex attraction.”

 

At the facility, Cameron is subjected to outlandish discipline, dubious “de-gaying” methods, and earnest Christian rock songs-but this unusual setting also provides her with an unlikely gay community. For the first time, Cameron connects with peers, and she’s able to find her place among fellow outcasts. Together, this group of teenagers forms an unlikely family as they fight to survive.
