Chloe Grace Moretz is very raw and genuine. This is not a work of fiction. This shit is still happening. Chances are, if you think homosexuality is a choice, you're a self-hating bisexual who needs to get a clue. This movie might help.

Excellent Chloe Grace Moretz. Crazy Conversion Therapy. Hey, experts, leave us kids alone.

This is an extreme example of how all people are treated in America, conformity is rewarded, but independent thought or action is met with social pressure and hostility.

Good movie. It presents a very realistic view of teenagers and issues. I hope parents of lgbtq kids see this movie and from that day forward tell their kids they are who they are and should not be changed by anyone.

It is an upsetting-you kind of good film, love it. Indeed it reminds you of One Flew Over the Cockoo's Nest, and then, yeah, reminds me of the Communists.

I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Some people have noted that the cinematography, soundtrack, and characterization are all pretty lightweight, and that's true. This is essentially a teen movie. But it's a teen movie that deals truthfully with the moment we live in, and I imagine it's ...Read more

This is the only movie I care about based on the only book I care about. Keep an open mind when watching it bc a lot had to be taken out bc the book is like 400+ pages long.

I wish the film had delved more into the background of its characters - it seems like Akhavan only covered their stories in broad strokes. How did the director of the camp's relationship with Rick change after she found out he was gay? Is there any resentment from Rick ...Read more

N, if you think that the cinematography was pleasant that's because you are a man who understands cinematography. I Watched this picture and BUster was whining the whole time BUT I still loved it.

You correcting his assumption about your sex was really great to read; I can't even out words to it. Thank you for setting an example of speaking up; it makes all of us stronger when we see an example of a woman calling out/addressing a misogynistic patriarchal assumption.

A real horror movie. It transmits you the feeling of drowning in a black hole...how many kids still receive this pressure from parents? How many people still dirtily use religion to manipulate others?

important subject matter and beautifully shot, but plot and character depth and development were really lacking.

I meant to see this film when it played the festival circuit and then was screened at the Laemmle theaters in Los Angeles where I live only I missed it. This is my first kanopy movie so thank you kanopy and LA Public Library! What a service I will gladly utilize. What a great movie too.

The cinematography in this film is what makes it. It's subtle. That's what i didn't realize for a while while in my seat. EXCELLENT work.

I think what this film lacks in cinematography was made up for with acting. Seriously this movie could not have been cast better, it felt incredibly real and organic. The storyline felt very refreshing as I've seen many films where the conversion therapy aspect is portrayed through ...Read more

One of the better horror movies I've seen this year. And, yes, it's a horror movie. Though not as stellar as her debut, a decent enough sophomore feature for Akhavan.

I remember checking out the book from the library and hiding it from my parents so they wouldn't find out I was reading "gay stuff". Reading 'The Miseducation of Cameron Post' was, for me, an enjoyable teen read. This movie felt like a psychological horror film. This isn't a condemnation ...Read more

I don't think I will ever understand Sundance? This won the Grand Jury Prize? Why? I mean, it works overall, I get the message loud and clear. But the Grand Jury Prize? Really? The script is average, performances are decent, cinematography okay, but nothing about this film stands out from the ...Read more

But for anyone who is watching the movie after reading the book by Emily M. Danforth- there are a few things you should be aware of.

This movie- in my opinion is drastically different from the book. By the time I finished watching it could have ...Read more

A fine film depicting the spiritual abuse of LGBTQI people.

Well-acted film that accurately portrays internal emotion and thought process onscreen. While mediocre in the technical department, it's not asking for flashy cinematography or production design; you're just meant to be there. 72/100

I really enjoyed this film. It was a touching story, beautifully shot and has been put together really well. It's hard to think that there are people who have gone through the same experiences that these characters have.

The movie is a mediocre - but not regrettable watch.

Most of the characters are really interesting, and well acted. Particularly, Rick. The actors do the best with what little screen time they have. However, many don't have a large effect on the story. They ...Read more

I think the film reflects a lot of ambiguity because it is there for the main characters. They are confused. In the last scene they have taken a stand and it is the birth of authenticity...and so they feel good. I actually appreciate the kind of vague, unformed quality of everyone except the ...Read more

But the trio are 3 teens without jobs, cash, shelter or family. "Taking a stand" is nice, but they have no means of survival. Hell, one of the characters said that if they left, they'd be homeless or forced into sex work - which is quickly ignored for a glossy, hollywood ending.

You ...Read more

You have made good points, Niaya. However, I still believe the ambiguous nature of the film reflects what is, in real life, a complicated issue. Teens should not be forced into brainwashing camps and it seems thousands are, in real life, forced into these programs. The ending isn't only all ...Read more

Charlene is correct. Unfortunately, all of these films and books act as if conversion or reparative therapy was invented in the 1970s-90s etc. As a survivor of mid-1950s psychotherapy "fix It" I can tell you that it was going and is still going on mainly under the radar. All of the emphasis ...Read more

Cassandra: I love the last line in your comment..."Making people hate themselves is a form of child abuse." I think the film addresses this form of abuse. Thanks for all your thoughts.
