The Miseducation of Cameron Post (Film & Discussion)

Based on the novel by Emily Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post follows Cameron (Chloë Grace Moretz) as she is sent to a gay conversion therapy center after getting caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night. The center is run by Dr. Lydia Marsh (Jennifer Ehle) and her brother, Reverend Rick (John Gallagher Jr.)— himself an example of how those in the program can be “cured.” In the face of intolerance, Cameron meets fellow sinners Jane (Sasha Lane), and Adam (Forrest Goodluck). Together, the teenagers form an unlikely family and fight to survive. Following the film, join Matthew Shurka and Senator Sara Gelser, leading activists against conversion therapy, in conversation with The Atlantic’s Matt Thompson.
