MONDAY NIGHT FILM SERIES: THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST

February 11, 2019 – 7:30pm at Tilley Hall, UNB Campus

THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST

Desiree Akhavan
USA, 2018
English
90 minutes
Principal cast: Chloë Grace Moretz, Jennifer Ehle, Sasha Lane, Forrest Goodluck

Part of Pink Lobster Film Festival week.

Despite dealing with the tragedy of losing her parents in a car crash, Cameron Post (Chloë Grace Moritz, Brain on Fire, Clouds of Sils Maria) seemingly fits in well with her conservative Montana community; she performs well at school, holds a place on the track team, participates in her local youth group, and has a picture-perfect boyfriend on her arm. However, when she and her best friend Coley are caught embracing after a high school dance, Cameron’s life quickly comes crashing down around her.

Cameron is immediately sent to pray away her “same-sex attraction” at God’s Promise, an evangelical conversion therapy camp, where she’s forced to wrestle with her identity and sexual orientation among a group of similarly stranded youths. After making a real connection with fellow campers Jane Fonda (Sasha Lane, American Honey, Hearts Beat Loud) and Adam Red Eagle (Forrest Goodluck, Indian Horse, The Revenant) and seeing some of the devastating effects of the camp’s program on others, Cameron is forced to question the legitimacy of the camp’s dogmatic teachings and decide for herself who she really is.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for dramatic feature at Sundance, The Miseducation of Cameron Post deftly explores how identities, families, and communities are intertwined through its stellar cast of up-and-coming actors and Desiree Akhavan’s skilled and thoughtful direction.
