Nicely directed, but what's its point?
13 October 2018 | by nnenokSee all my reviews

Throughout the film, I was trying to figure out what's the reason behind making this film now. It's about gay Christian conversion camp set in 1993 and tells us what absolutely everyone (or at least people who this film is aimed at) in 2018 knows - conversion doesn't work. It would make more sense if it would be set in this day and age and would be showing conversion camps that still exist; but a 25 year-old-story is at the same time not old enough to be showing a piece of history, and not recent enough to be relevant to the current state of society.

It also doesn't put a new spin on the story - if anything, it feels like almost the same plot as But I'm a Cheerleader (made in 1999). If the latter would be made today, it would be presented as a parody of Miseducation of CP, as it is a very campy comedy, however, it hits most of the same plot points. My only guess to why this film was made now is that films like this are able to get famous names and thus a more mainstream audience (like with Love, Simon earlier this year), allowing telling stories that were previously aimed at - and seen only by - a narrow group of people; and that someone wanted to do some nice sex scenes in a Christian environment. Now those were worth seeing!
