More than about sexual orientation (by anandshakti)
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 <more>
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.
I've been looking forward to this being released for months and let me tell you it did not disappoint!. The acting and shift between funny and drama is perfectly done, one minute you are laughing and the next nearly in tears. This is a wonderful film and one of the most stand out films of the year for me. I hope this gets recognition with awards because it was truly stunning. You can always tell when a film is special when you sit in silence after it has finished.
Everything I hoped it would be (by aquamaureen-48530)
I was looking forward to this movie for a long while, since this has been one of my favorite books for years, and it certainly did not disappoint. Even though they cut out the first portions of the book, and only focused on the last part, it fit wonderfully. I never felt like anything was missing. And as for the parts of the book they did include, I found it incredibly faithful. I recognized lines nearly directly out of the book, more than once. And the acting... wow. These actors really brought the characters to life, and they felt familiar. Rick is just superb, and heartbreaking, and <more>
Mark's sub-plot, specifically his breakdown, left me speechless. All of this not to mention the atmosphere of the film, which fit the feel of the book. Perfectly. Truly, it's just wonderful.
Strong performances push this film to the top of the post. (by ccorral419)
Actress, Writer, Director Desiree Akhavan "Appropriate Behavior" 2014 is back in the seat again, this time adding Executive Producer to her list of accomplishments. Presenting a solid summer youth angst film about the 1990's "gay conversion therapy" phase, we are introduced to Cameron Chloe Grace Moritz "Carrie" 2013 who is caught having relations with her BFF Coley Quinn Shephard ""Blame" 2017 , and sent to camp "Gods Promise" to change her lifestyle. Heading the "conversion therapy" is conflicted leader Reverend Rick <more>
the terrific John Gallagher Jr. "The Newsroom" 2012 and the tightly wound Dr. Lydia Marsh the amazing Jennifer Ehle ""Little Men" 2016 . If these two robots aren't enough to scare you straight, nothing is. However, when you place a bunch of independent blooming young minded kids Sasha Lane "American Honey" 2016, Emily Skeggs "When We Rise" TV, Forrest Goodluck "The Revenant" 2015, to name but a few of the terrific camp captives in a place that's all about "don't do this, and don't do that", things don't always go as planned. Akhavan is terrific at slowing reveling each young adults fears and frustrations, while quietly enabling them to work through their issues privately and in bursts of revelation. Gallagher Jr. and Ehle are superb in their self-centered and standoffish roles as leaders. There's something erie behind their facades that keeps the audience wondering if and when their personal dam will burst. Fellow camp captive Mark Owen Campbell "The Americans" TV gets on opportunity to stretch his acting chops in a break out scene that is one of the films most powerful displays of personal growth forcibly held back by those charged with helping the young. I haven't really had Chloe Grace Moritz on my radar, but with her strong and appealing performance here, she is someone to watch. In fact, all the youth in this film are sure to see an up tick in their acting careers due to thier honest and heart-filled roles here. I just wish the film had a more resolute ending.
The Miseducation of Cameron Post 2018 was co-written and directed by Desiree Akhavan. The film stars Chloë Grace Moretz as Cameron, a young lesbian woman who is sent to a Christian conversion center that is supposed to help teens struggling with "same-sex attraction."The school is directed by Dr. Lydia Marsh, brilliantly portrayed by Jennifer Ehle. According to the movie's hype about the center's staff, these "would-be villains are almost sympathetic."To me, Dr. Marsh isn't almost sympathetic. She's not even close to being sympathetic. She's a person <more>
who has teenagers in her power, and she makes their lives miserable with a detailed system of reinforcements and punishments.Conversion centers are legal in 41 states. That's a horrifying reality. New York State--where the movie takes place--has made it difficult, but not impossible, to run a conversion center. Each year the NYS Assembly passes legislation to make these centers illegal. Each year the NYS Senate kills the legislation. Whether the NYS Senate will be changed after the 2018 elections remains to be seen. Even if that happens, we will have to see if they will pass protective legislation. The acting of all the teens at the facility is strong. Director Akhavan must have a magic touch to bring out such strong performances. She doesn't need a magic touch for Chloë Grace Moretz, who is already a skilled performer.Of course, Jennifer Ehle is a brilliant actor. She makes us believe in her hateful behavior. It wasn't clear to me whether she truly believed that she was helping the children placed within her charge, or whether she was just doing this to make a living and exert her power. Either way, she portrays a woman you wouldn't want to cross. We saw this film at Rochester's wonderful Dryden Theatre at The George Eastman Museum. It was shown as part of Image Out, the excellent Rochester LGBT Festival.It will work on the small screen. Seek it out and watch it!
I've been reading reviews on here saying this is a remake of But I'm a Cheerleader and those reviewers thinking this film is a copy. However this is based on the book by Emily Danforth, a really spectacular book and I think the film follows suit. But I'm a Cheerleader was a strong comedy set on the foundation of drama by the theme of the film. The Miseducation of Cameron Post is primarily a drama with occasional chuckles provided by a well written script and delivered by a well rounded cast. Give it a try with an open mind, set aside comparing the two films and instead see how <more>
they really do compliment each other on the topic of gay conversion camps in the USA.
Serious version of But I'm a Cheerleader (by sfdphd)
Sweet teenage girl gets caught kissing her girlfriend and is sent to a Christian gay conversion camp. The film But I'm a Cheerleader had a comic perspective on this situation but this film Miseducation takes it seriously. Seemed like a realistically awful situation. Fortunately the girl makes some friends at the camp but they all suffer under the pressure to change their orientation. The film shows that this is emotional abuse. The acting of all the teens is excellent.

Summary in BriefThe Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of The Miseducation of Cameron PostThe Good: All the acting is pretty much "on fleek". The characters are charming giving us this ex-gay Breakfast Club feel. While Dr. Marsh is our Diablo, Rev. Rick is our Igore who really fueled the fire behind this exgay, psychological nightmare camp. We first encounter Rev. Rick playing worship music to the young "Disciples" at the lodge which is fitting. He is a pied piper of sorts singing the praises of a God he feels rescued him from a gay hell and hoping to lure these kids in with his <more>
heartfelt delusion. He's a great singer, guitar player and passionate. This is an element that can and did hook me into exgay ministry and religious fundamentalism as well--heart stirring music that rose my consciousness to heavenly places. I know because I've been deep in it. Nothing wrong on the surface until those that usher and play these pipes start coloring in a God who can't tolerate a part of who you are and all you have known since early childhood. For a work of fiction, this movie is pretty spot on right down to the Iceburg theory that the kids are forced to participate in, which is prevalent in ex-gay circles and my own first exposure to it. Though it does nothing for Cameron, there are more tools in the toolbox waiting for her. The owner of that toolbox is the relentless ice queen, Dr. Lydia Marsh and her strange co-hort Rev Rick who have an unusual vested interest in each others success we find out about later . These two play our two antagonists very well with one carrying a certain innocently dangerous charm Rev Rick and the other a pscyhologically abusive power Dr. Marsh . The story does a great job keeping us connected to Cameron's love interest in Coley played by Quinn Shephard. If you are lesbian, you will enjoy their connection and the many sex scenes early on and through flashbacks. Cameron's long distance love affair with Coley reminded me a little of The Color Purple right down to Cameron finding out Coley's letters had been kept from her. It is clear why Cameron struggles with her affair with Coley because Quinn does a great job as a sexual powerhouse. Coley is an identity whirlwind that Cameron can't control. When the affair is exposed, it all get's out of hand for her Jesus loving family and Cameron is sent to exgay camp. The longing, guilt and confusion that play a ripple effect through Cameron are felt in the movie from beginning to end, and it is played authentically. The film does a descent job too of balancing out humor and using Cameron's defiance to keep us from being sucked into a void of despair. The characters surrounding her are also a help--they are entertaining and emotionally appealing. You want more, not less. The story is set in 1993 and I felt they did a good job of making this feel old school with the lighting, the hues, and simple things like the VHS recording of "Bless-ercise "and old school Vanity mirrors. There are believable characters here you will want to invest in and you will but the question is does the film leave you short on your investment? No and Yes. Read on....The Bad: While we are teased with characters who are overtly in denial, others ready to explode, and still others deeply faithful and often very funny, the film focuses more on how the characters live mundane, abusive lives. Some of it covers their modes of resisting but leaves a sad lacking element of teasing but not delivering to us a more in-depth exposure to these characters. This plays out in snippets of group sessions with characters we later don't see much of or get to know. Some of the tragic highlights happen to characters I ended up wanting to know more about than Cameron herself at points because of their emotional turmoil. This is chiefly because Cameron comes in resisting but many others are not as strong willed. Eventually, even Cameron begins to doubt herself but not for long like the others have. This is just nit picking some because her story is still appealing too, but I wanted more. Also, there is a lack of any kind of awareness around Cameron's now-family except that they are Jesus loving and threw her into this camp which is another missed connection. The framing of the movie throws us right into camp early and ends pretty much the moment she escapes so that there is no real solid sense of Cameron's beginning or her end. It is just hinted at as are most things in this film. Jennifer Ehle's portrayal of Dr. Marsh is disturbing. You dislike her easily, but at times she is played too robotic and a bit less believable.., but in another way that too is on point. Having experienced many a leader in these ministries they are so cut off from themselves and compassion. They do indeed come off robotic and fake. Still at times, even her fake didn't land. The Ugly: Just a personal preference, but I found the ending strange. Like taking 10 minutes to eat one Cheetoh. It was a weightless, meaningless ending that should have been powerful since it is the start of what we hope for some of the characters in the film who have some sense about them. Yet, it comes off a bit unfinished, almost like the writer didn't know what to do next.
While the film itself is superb, it's also likely to fly too far under the radar to land Moretz any awards (by metaflixinc)
Chloë Grace Moretz has been squarely on our radar since 2011's phenomenal 'Hugo.' In 'The Miseducation of Cameron Post,' she plays a high school junior who gets caught in the back seat of a car with another girl during prom and is subsequently sent to a religious gay conversion facility.Playing a gay character is a rite of passage for many young actors and actresses. At its most poignant, such a performance brings the potential for an Academy Award into the realm of possibility Tom Hanks in Philadelphia is one such example . In 'Miseducation,' Moretz puts her <more>
acting chops on full display and we couldn't be happier to see her continuing to push the boundaries of her talent. While the film itself is superb, it's also likely to fly too far under the radar to land Moretz any awards. However, the expectations for her to someday have enough hardware to fill up her mantle have never been higher.
