The Miseducation of Cameron Post is an understated and quite powerful film that is sensitive towards all of its characters, is remarkable in how inclusive it is, has great performances and has welcome acerbic humor that made me laugh out loud at times.
Some will say The Miseducation of Cameron Post is too subtle, too quiet, and this really isn't a fair assessment; to say something like this is to overlook wholly remarkable, finely detailed filmmaking craft. It hits hard without ever hammering.
Fictional though it may be ... Cameron Post is still divested of the Hollywood-driven tricks that browbeat you into becoming a cheerleader for some manufactured emotional arc. This film stays away from all that disingenuousness.
Apart from Moretz, who is dynamic in the lead, actor John Gallagher Jr. delivers one of the film's strongest performances. Parents, support your kids and see this film, especially if you have a teenager at home.
