“Fans of Appropriate Behavior won’t be disappointed in Desiree Akhavan’s sweet, compassionate yet brutally honest film about surviving gay conversion therapy. Adapted from Emily M. Danforth’s acclaimed book, it follows Cameron, as she gets caught making out with another girl on prom night and is sent off to a conversion center by her conservative family. Akhavan follows the lives of these manipulated outcasts in a quietly hostile environment with accumulating wisdom, as some of them manage to break free and others prove to be not as lucky. With pitch-perfect performances from Chloë Grace Moretz, Sasha Lane and Jennifer Ehle (who channels the bone-chilling Nurse Ratched), The Miseducation of Cameron Post is the film of acceptance and understanding we need today.” - Tomris Laffly, RogerEbert.com
