Based on the celebrated novel by Emily M. Danforth, THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST follows the titular character (Chloë Grace Moretz) as she is sent to a gay conversion therapy center 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 and fight to survive.

"Navigating troubled culture-war waters with grace, humor and compassion, THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST is a movie that deserves a wide and diverse audience." - A.O. Scott. A New York Times Critic's Pick!
