There's a subtlety to Desiree Akhavan's film, and its pitch-perfect performances, even while Lydia's intentions are so piercingly cruel and Rev Rick's methods so embarrassingly blundering.

The natural, unforced sincerity is the heartbeat of this film, and it touched me on the deepest emotional level.

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.

A film that graphically describes the damage done to the psyches of gay people by a barbaric "therapy" endorsed by Vice President Mike Pence.

There are a few clichés which can be seen coming for miles, but Miseducation is otherwise chilling.

It feels more vital than some of its more recent contemporaries and the optimism that shone through became the movies key asset - aside from the marvellous turn from Moretz.

Moretz is phenomenal. She gives a performance that's among the best of her young career.

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.

While the film has its heart in the right place, and the target is unquestionably perverse, The movie has a big problem at the centre: The lead.

October 25, 2018
Has its moments of hilarity, but ultimately it's a young adult film that will stick in your head for its message and the relevance that it has today.

What Akhavan captures here is usually ineffable and fittingly, there are no words strong enough to describe what a special film this is.

Miseducation benefits from Moretz in the lead. Her abilities and maturity go well beyond her 21 years, and this is surely the finest of her films to date.

Given its chilly setting and its snarky teens, Cameron is bound to be compared to Jamie Babbit's 1999 ex-gay camp comedy But I'm a Cheerleader. Yet each film holds its own very well.

There's a beautiful optimism to a film so full of pain and an unabashed queerness and levity present that could only come from a filmmaker like Akhavan

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.

The searching for identity in a world that contains only narrow definitions of it expands the story, giving it heart and understanding and even sympathy for the adults imposing their warped fears on teenagers who actually do know better.
October 2, 2018
It's a bruising study of a practice that continues today and is promoted by among others, Mike Pence.
September 14, 2018
The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a lesson in acceptance and a call to arms with a beautiful beating heart.

Cameron - the kind of cool kid who'd use the word "cool" with caution - fits Moretz like a glove.

Cameron Post does not quite fit the label of a comedy, nor a drama, but manages to do the best of both.
