Description

One of the great, under-reported human rights tragedies of modern America is the existence of gay conversion therapy, which has only been outlawed for minors in 13 states. (Sadly, Michigan isn’t one of them.) Based on the modern classic novel, this Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner brings this ongoing atrocity powerfully to life. Chloë Grace Moretz plays the titular Cameron, a teenager caught with another girl in the backseat of a car on prom night. When her guardians pull her out of school and send her to a gay conversion therapy camp, Cameron’s world is sent into upheaval. But Cameron also realizes that, for the first time, she’s surrounded by other LGBTQ teens, and suddenly feels part of a support group that’s committed to resisting the oppressive ideology the camp preaches.
