The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
The Miseducation of Cameron Post follows the titular character as she is sent to a gay conversion therapy center after getting caught having sex with the prom queen. Run by the strict Dr. Lydia Marsh and her brother, Reverend Rick — himself an example of how those in the program can be “cured” — the center is populated by teens “struggling with same-sex attraction.” In the face of outlandish discipline, dubious methods, and earnest Christian rock songs, Cameron forms an unlikely gay community, including the amputee stoner Jane and the Lakota Two-Spirit, Adam. In creating a family on her own terms, she learns what it means to empower herself and have confidence in her identity.
The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a film adaptation of Emily M. Danforth’s YA novel of the same name, with the film directed by Desiree Akhavan, who co-wrote the script with Cecilia Frugiuele. The film stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Sasha Lane, John Gallagher Jr., Forrest Goodluck, Jennifer Ehle, Quinn Shephard, Emily Skeggs, Dalton Harrod, Christopher Dylan White, Steven Hauck, Isaac Jin Solstein, Melanie Ehrlich, McCabe Slye, Kerry Butler, Owen Campbell and Marin Ireland.
The Miseducation of Cameron Post is scheduled for cinematic release on the 3rd August 2018.
