Join us at the Underground Cinema by WVIFF for One of October’s feature films: The Miseducation of Cameron Post

About the film:
In 1993 after teenage Cameron is caught in the backseat of a car with the prom queen, she is sent away to a treatment center in a remote area called God’s Promise. While she is being subjected to questionable gay conversion therapies, she bonds with some fellow residents as they pretend to go along with the process while waiting to be released.

What the critics are saying:
The Miseducation of Cameron Post is neither a glib sendup of a less enlightened era nor a pious reckoning with bygone injustices. It is more interested in how its characters feel. Full review

The NYTimes
With an earthy, realistic tone, this timely drama is fairly straightforward; it’s geared toward the source novel’s YA fans/audience, but it’s patient and warmly sympathetic enough for others. Full review

Jeffrey M. Anderson
Common Sense Media
Akhavan’s sense of place and ensemble do a lot to counter that, but that specificity ends with the main character. Full review
