I love all these movies coming out about how toxic society has become. Where has freewill gone? Why must we insist on controlling people in order to fit inside a box of so-called normality? This film depicts the disturbing downward spiral of compassion for diversity.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) was co-written and directed by Desiree Akhavan. The film stars Chlo? 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 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 Chlo? 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!
Even when you want to be totally supportive of this very creative (her previous movie) director, you cannot forget that a copy is a copy is a copy. Reading her interviews denying that she intentionally remade I'm a Cheerleader is quite upsetting. If you wrote this script and presented it as a thesis, you would surely be told that this is simple plagiarism. I invite everyone to go and seek I'm a Cheerleader. Same themes, same locations, same era, same characters, so much so that after one minute, you know where the movie is going. I'm a Cheerleader is super funny and very deep at the same time. The Miseducation is neither when compared to a movie that was brilliantly directed 20 years ago and let's say that it's also a cult with cinephiles of ALL kind. I cannot believe for once that the judges that gave Desiree Akhavan her award were not aware of the similarities (identical scenes) with the previous movie. If I had not known the previous movie (I repeat Desiree Akhavan does not say this is a remake of that movie!), then I would have probably appreciated The Miseducation a bit more. But same as when you copy someone else's ideas, you either own what you did or you sooner or later will be found out. Unfortunately, we live in a world where successful musician are taking other people's songs and only admitting doing so if caught. Desiree Akhavan I love your first movie. Desiree Akhavan this is a copy and a copy is a copy is a copy.
