Movie Info & Cast
Chloë Grace Moretz stars as Cameron, a typical 1990s teenager who gets in trouble on prom night. Only in her case, “trouble” means hooking up with another girl in the back seat of a car – and it lands her in a gay conversion therapy center. While the dubious facility attempts to cure Cameron’s same-sex attraction through outlandish discipline and Christian karaoke, it also offers her something new: a community of fellow sinners, outcasts, and peers. Surrounded by intolerance, these teenagers form a family built on love and acceptance. Adapted from Emily Danforth’s acclaimed novel by writer/director Desiree Akhavan and co-writer Cecilia Frugiuele, the film earned the U.S. Grand Jury Prize at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

Please please read the book first they do miss on a couple of key elements that will leave you confused if you do not read it first
Akhavan elicits finely layered performances from her cast. Moretz digs deeper than she has in years for a sensitive lead turn that harmonizes especially well with her co-stars.
Miseducation has a funny, breezy surface — even though tragedy predictably intervenes at one point — but Cameron’s wry sense of humour doesn’t diminish how warping these conversion centres are, slowly instilling in people the sense that they’re faulty.
