Trivia

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 »

Socially relevant yet non-vindictive
11 April 2019 | by hudson-toddSee all my reviews

You have to take this film for what it is: a low-key exploration of the experience of teenagers in a fundamentalist Christian gay conversion camp. The biggest mistake a movie like this could make would be to overly vilify everything about the camp and it's staff rather then dealing with them as human beings who are the products of their own misguided religious belief systems. The second biggest mistake a film like this could make would be NOT to address the emotional abuse that such a practice delivers. To this end, the film lets the harm of conversion therapy be self-evident without overtly pointing to it in a reactionary, outraged fashion. This is no easy accomplishment. The film is subtle and features solid acting performances by promising young actors, led by the magnificent Chloe Grace Moretz. They managed to portray the realistic ambivalence experienced by LGBT youth who find themselves in such situations. Although it will win no great swards, will be no blockbuster, and will not become a cult classic, this film definitely belongs on your must-watch list if you care about this issue.
