    Does quite well within its own limitted, choir-preachy scope.

    Great movie! But read the book first please! but definitely not PG-13 I was watching this in my family room. I thought it was appropriate and then there was a random part of nudity

    Probably haven't seen a film narrative involving conversion therapy till now, only to find it how pretentiously demeaning it is to individualism, driven by pitiful disapprovals over unique identity and as an excuse to use emotional abuse to convincingly be related to the antagonistic nurse in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" with zero regards for youthful feelings. Aside from the undercurrent of the film's main setting, it's quite a timely topical commentary that functions as a teen angst flick trying to successfully uplift their spirits as calm before the tension spikes albeit the uneventful process to tell a story over processing spiritual conversion as an act of healing. Like many as players tackles a tough subject, the cast minimalizes to support each other in their emotionally maintained calm performances against conservative restriction, with Moretz stepping on a more appropriate stone of her stardom.

    The tone and spirit of the film is spot-on for the entire runtime; never did it falter. It successfully touches upon a variety of issues without ever dwelling or being heavy handed.

    A fantastic journey which shows the inside of gay conversion therapy and its impact on young queer people. The characters are complex and relatable, likable but flawed in their own ways. They behave as normal teenagers, instead of as ones whose only personality trait is to be gay. A coming-of-age that watches Cameron's internal struggle with her own sexuality as well as how she handles others' views on it. Great addition to a very small category of lesbian films, and is finally one which does not focus on sex, cheating, or other people instead of the actual character. One of the best parts was to also see a lesbian film which shows a happy ending. Additionally, nice to see a queer film where platonic relationships between gay people are represented, as oppose to the cliche portrayal of gay people automatically romantically/sexually involved with each other. Could not recommend more.

    Not a happy movie at all - and shows the issues of those trying to find their true sexuality and person they want to be - very depressing but extremely well acted throughout

    This film demonstrates the cruelty of "conversion therapy" without the grim graphic quality of some "movie of the week" type soap operas I've seen, and much better acting.

    There are a couple of reasons why you might find yourself laughing when watching The Miseducation Of Cameron Post. One of them is because of the genuinely witty dialogue. The other is that kind of uncomfortable laugh that happens when we realise that some of this said dialogue is actually used by real adults towards real young people in an attempt to "de-gay" them in the real world. This film is heartbreaking, relevant, needed and very well acted.
