Desiree Akhavan Accepts Sundance Grand Jury Prize, Vows to Make More Films That Reflect Her Queer Identity — Watch

Desiree Akhavan Accepts Sundance Grand Jury Prize, Vows to Make More Films That Reflect Her Queer Identity — Watch
When “The Miseducation of Cameron Post” took home the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival this year, Desiree Akhavan was not on hand to accept the prize for her sophomore feature. The director had taped a thank you speech to be played at the festival’s awards Saturday night, but it was not broadcast due to technical difficulties. The reason for her absence was bittersweet; Akhavan was due back in London to resume work on another project, a television series for Channel 4 and Hulu with themes similar to her first feature, “Appropriate Behavior.”

For the series, which bears the working title “The Bisexual,” Akhavan re-teamed with her “Cameron Post” co-writer, Cecilia Frugiuele. The two women accepted the Grand Jury Prize together from the comfort of a couch in London.

Sundance 2018: 'gay conversion' drama wins grand jury prize

The Miseducation of Cameron Post has won the independent film festival’s highest honour for its study of teenagers struggling to ‘pray away the gay’

“Gay re-education” comedy-drama The Miseducation of Cameron Post has won the grand jury prize at the Sundance film festival, the most influential award on the Us independent circuit.

Directed by Desiree Akhavan and starring Chloë Grace Moretz, the adaptation of Emily M Danforth’s 2012 novel secured admiring reviews – including five stars from the Guardian’s Jordan Hoffman – for its compassionate study of Christian teenagers struggling with religious disapproval and the injunction to “pray away the gay”. It is Akhavan’s second feature as director, following her 2015 indie hit Appropriate Behaviour. The grand jury prize is a reliable marker of future potential, with recent winners including Whiplash, Fruitvale Station and Beasts of the Southern Wild.

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Miseducation of Cameron Post’

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Miseducation of Cameron Post’
The Miseducation of Cameron Post” takes place in the early ’90s, and it’s a shame neither the book nor the movie existed back then. That was before Ellen DeGeneres professed, “Yep, I’m Gay,” on the cover of Time magazine (1997), before a weekly sitcom called “Will & Grace” brought an openly gay character into primetime (1998), and of course, long before same-sex couples won the right to get married in all 50 states (2015). In the early ’90s, it was not a good idea to double-date to the school formal, then wind up making out with the prom queen in the back seat of your boyfriend’s car — which is the premise of both Emily M. Danforth’s novel and director Desiree Akhavan’s relatively flat adaptation thereof, a surprise winner at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

When the orphaned Cameron does exactly that, her guardians send her to a Christian camp called God’s Promise, which specializes

Sundance Review: ‘The Miseducation of Cameron Post’ is a Tender Drama Lacking in Personality

On her prom night, Cameron Post (Chloë Grace Moretz) gets caught making out with her high school girlfriend in the parking lot, resulting in her parents sending her off to God’s Promise, a gay conversion therapy camp. Featuring weeks of religious gaslighting in which those in charge not only you tell you the desires of your heart are immoral, but homosexuality itself doesn’t even exist, The Miseducation of Cameron Post provides a tender, well-rounded, if not entirely successful look at the emotionally abusive experience.

Desiree Akhavan, who broke out at Sundance with her personal, witty Appropriate Behavior, brings a sensitivity to the story, based on Emily M. Danforth’s novel, that finds a humanity in Cameron, the fellow teens she meets, and even the wrong-headed, ultimately conflicted counselors. Upon arriving, Cameron quickly makes friends with the maybe self-named Jane Fonda (Sasha Lane) and Adam (Forrest Goodluck), who also

Chloë Grace Moretz isn’t ready to talk specifically about the sexual misconduct allegations against her co-star and “I Love You, Daddy” writer-director Louis C.K. The young actress has been a champion of the #MeToo and Time’s Up anti-harassment movements, but she didn’t want to zero in on C.K. when asked by Variety at Sundance.

“I could single-in and talk about my experience, but I think it’s more important to talk about the entire movement as a whole,” Moretz said in the video interview, which is embedded below.

Chloe Grace Moretz on Louis C.K. Allegations: ‘It’s More Important to Talk About the Entire Movement’ (Exclusive)
Chloe Grace Moretz worked alongside Louis C.K. on his film “I Love You, Daddy” before accusations of sexual misconduct from five women came out against the comedian, causing the movie to be dropped just days before the release.

In “I Love You, Daddy,” C.K. plays a television writer who tries to prevent his teenage daughter, played by Moretz, from falling for an older filmmaker, played by John Malkovich. The premiere for the film was abruptly cancelled in the wake of allegations against C.K., which Moretz has not responded to.

Speaking at the Variety Studio presented by At&T at the Sundance Film Festival, Moretz was asked about her personal experience and how she dealt with the scandal after working so closely with C.K., who wrote and directed “I Love You, Daddy” in addition to starring as her on-screen father.

Chloë Grace Moretz In ‘The Miseducation Of Cameron Post’ [Sundance Review]

Park City – Gay coming of age stories are seemingly back in vogue. Last year, Sundance unveiled “Call Me By Your Name” and “Beach Rats.” In March 20th Century Fox will release “Love, Simon” and there are at least two other gay-themed high school films this critic knows of that didn’t make the Sundance cut this time around. One film, however, was selected to screen at this year’s festival and it was Desiree Akhavan’s “The Miseducation Of Cameron Post,” which had its world premiere on Monday.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post review – prayers answered with conversion therapy drama

Chloë Grace Moretz puts in a career-best turn as a teen sent to “pray away the gay” at a Christian camp in Desiree Akhavan’s compassionate Lgbt story

When director Desiree Akhavan introduced her adaptation of Emily Danforth’s novel The Miseducation of Cameron Post at its Sundance world premiere, she said there were no queer John Hughes films when she was growing up. While Hughes’ films are beloved by many (including myself) I think she’s selling her own work a little bit short by suggesting that comparison. Her film about a teen gay conversion retreat has humor, but isn’t jokey, and while its drama doesn’t speak down to young people, it won’t leave adults feeling out of the loop. This is a gripping and sad drama that puts a tremendous amount of faith in its performers and audience, and for all the emotion and tenderness

‘The Miseducation of Cameron Post’ Review: This Beautiful Coming-of-Age Story Is Mike Pence’s Worst Nightmare — Sundance 2018

“The Miseducation of Cameron Post” is a humble, poignant, and extremely touching coming-of-age drama that unfolds like a seriocomic “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” set at a gay conversion camp for Christian teens circa 1993. Complete with Jennifer Ehle as an indomitable riff on Nurse Ratched, the movie shears Emily M. Danforth’s massive Ya novel of the same name down to a sensitive film that cuts right to the heart of the matter. Played by a beautifully understated and unsure Chloë Grace Moretz, Cameron Post is an orphaned high school junior who develops some very biblical — and blessedly mutual — feelings for a girl she meets at Sunday school (“Blame” director Quinn Shephard).

It’s all innocent fun and fingering until someone finds Cameron and her friend in the backseat of a car on prom night. That’s all it takes for Cameron’s evangelical aunt to ship her off to God’s Promise,
