THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST

Viewing: August 29, 2018

Director: Desiree Akhavan
Cast: Chloë Grace Moretz, Sasha Lane, Jennifer Ehle, Marin Ireland

The Athena Cinema and the OU LGBT Center present a special one-night-only screening of The Miseducation of Cameron Post. Discussion to follow the film screening.

Cameron Post (Chloë Grace Moretz) looks the part of a perfect high school girl. But after she’s caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night, Cameron is quickly shipped off to a conversion therapy center that treats teens “struggling with same-sex attraction.” At the facility, Cameron is subjected to outlandish discipline, dubious “de-gaying” methods, and earnest Christian rock songs-but this unusual setting also provides her with an unlikely gay community. For the first time, Cameron connects with peers, and she’s able to find her place among fellow outcasts.

Admission: $6.50. There will be a limited number of free student tickets available on a first-come, first-serve
basis, day of show at 4:00 p.m. at the Athena Cinema.
 Students must present OU I.D., limit of one ticket per student I.D.

The repressive setting would be, in a less nuanced film, a site of unadulterated horror. But Cameron, Jane, and Adam, like queer people through the ages, find ways to bond, joke, and help each other through the circumstances.
