The Miseducation of Cameron Post


FilmRise



Try to track this one down if you can.

"The Miseducation of Cameron Post" won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, and it'll begin its rollout in select cities starting August 3.

The disturbing/hilarious/powerful/inspiring trailer was just released, with Chloë Grace Moretz as the titular character.

Here's the synopsis:

"From writer/director Desiree Akhavan and based on the celebrated novel by Emily M. Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post follows Cameron (Chloë Grace Moretz) 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), and her friend, the Lakota Two-Spirit, Adam (Forrest Goodluck). Together, this group of teenagers form an unlikely family as they fight to survive."

Here's the trailer:



FilmRise is releasing the movie in New York on August 3, and then Los Angeles on August 10. And then hopefully it'll find its way to the rest of the country and wider world.
