Program Description

Event Details

A timely coming-of-age story with wit, compassion, and an affecting overall generosity of spirit.

Stop by the Scott Room for a screening and discussion of the 2018 film The Miseducation of Cameron Post. Directed by Desiree Akhavan and starring Chloë Grace Moretz, John Gallagher Jr., Sasha Lane, and Forrest Goodluck, the film tells the story of Cameron Post (Mortez), a teenager in 1993 caught in a secret same-sex relationship with her girlfriend and sent to a gay conversion center run by Dr. Lydia Marsh and her brother Reverend Rick (Gallagher). While there, Cameron befriends two other members of the center, Jane Fonda (Lane) and Adam Red Eagle (Goodluck), and they navigate the difficult and emotionally trying atmosphere of the center.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in 2018 where it won Sundance's Grand Jury Prize for US Drama.

Please note that The Miseducation of Cameron Post may not be suitable for all ages due to brief depictions of moderate sexuality.

This film is part of our celebration of Pride Month, showcasing queer stories and the LGBT actors and screenwriters, historical and contemporary, who contributed to American cinema.
