Chloe Grace Moretz is Sent to a Gay Conversion Camp in Trailer For THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST
The first trailer for Chloe Grace Moretz's new film The Miseducation of Cameron Post has been released and it was one of the most buzzed about films at Sundance this year. When you watch the trailer, you'll see why. It has all of the elements that would make a great and successful Sundance film.
The movie is based on the novel by Emily M. Danforth. The story is set in 1993 and follows a young woman named Cameron (Moretz) as she is sent to a gay conversion therapy camp 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.
The film comes from writer and director Desiree Akhavan and it looks like a solid film that tells an important story as its characters deal with the frustration and uncertainty of the situation they find themselves in and where it will lead them.
The Miseducation of Cameron Post will open in selected theaters in New York on August 3 and Los Angeles on August 10, 2018.
