Chloe Grace Moretz is quietly riveting as the title character in The Miseducation of Cameron Post, winner of this year’s Grand Jury Prize at Sundance. Based on an autobiographical young adult novel by Rhode Island College professor Emily Danforth, the sensitive drama follows a girl sent to a conversion therapy camp for queer teens. It’s a very relevant subject – Rhode Island formally banned conversion therapy just last year, and 36 states still allow the practice – but like nearly all well-regarded LGBT films this one’s framed historically, a decade before today’s teens were even born. I’m interested to see how this compares to Boy Erased, a second autobiographical conversion therapy drama that’s due out later this year. (This appears to be Cameron Post’s only local screening. Tickets are free but seating is limited; tickets can be reserved in advance by visiting the RIC Box Office.)
