A woman returns to her Orthodox Jewish community that shunned her for her attraction to a female childhood friend. Once back, their passions reignite as they explore the boundaries of faith and sexuality.
This is the second indie film in which actor John Gallagher Jr. plays a character who operates a facility for troubled youth. The first was in Short Term 12 (2013), where Gallagher's character ran a group home for troubled teenagers with his girlfriend played by Brie Larson. In 'The Miseducation of Cameron Post' however, he runs a gay conversion therapy center for teenagers with his sister played by Jennifer Ehle. See more »
I don't think of myself as a homosexual. I really don't think of myself as anything.

I am a 71 year old heterosexual woman and I loved it. It left me with a large lump in my throat so I went home to see what it was about. And big surprise it took me back to my high school years when I felt so frustrated, bored, trapped by the stupidity of what I was spending my days doing. Taking tests on regurgitated information that didn't interest me at all. I just cried the lump out that was a ball of similar feelings to the ones portrayed in the movie. This was outwardly worse and very poignant and it makes me understand why so many kids today are lost and angry. They are right to be angry. Who is caring for who they are- not who everyone wants them to be?
Thanks for your courageous movie. I think almost anyone could get something out of it.
