Film Fest Gent - The Miseducation of Cameron Post

"Being a teenager is hard. Being a teenager struggling to figure out your sexuality is harder. Being a teenager struggling to figure out your sexuality while enrolled in a gay conversion therapy is almost impossible, but in Desiree Akhavan's 'The Miseducation of Cameron Post', based on the 2012 novel by Emily M. Danforth, there is hope in resistance. After Cameron Post (Chloë Grace Moretz) is caught hooking up with a girl at her school dance, her religious aunt sends her away to an insufferable place called God's Promise, where teens are forced to reevaluate their alleged gender confusion and same sex attraction." (Little White Lies)

"Chloë Grace Moretz puts in a career-best turn as a teen sent to "pray the gay away" at a Christian camp in Desiree Akhavan's compassionate LGBT story. This is a gripping and sad drama that puts a tremendous amount of faith in its performers and audience. A film that left me a complete broken-down mess by the end." (The Guardian)
