the miseducation of cameron post trailer

The Miseducation of Cameron Post has neither the happy sheen of a coming-of-age movie, nor the weepy inspirational tone of an LGBT coming-out film. Instead, it drifts somewhere in-between. The Sundance darling stars Chloe Grace Moretz as a lesbian high schooler who gets sent against her will to a gay conversion camp where she finds a sort of community among the misfit teens, and a bid at discovering her own identity.

Directed by Desiree Akhavan and based on the novel by Emily M. Danforth, the drama made a splash at Sundance where it won the Grand Jury Prize. Now, after making the festival rounds at Sundance, Tribeca, and more, The Miseducation of Cameron Post will make its way to select theaters in the U.S. You can watch the trailer below.
