While the Republican party continues to torture themselves and their children with “ex-gay” abuse, a new movie is in the works that exposes the harm that the discredited “treatment” causes.
It’s called The Miseducation of Cameron Post, and it sounds kind of like a serious version of But I’m a Cheerleader. Starring are Chloe Moretz and Sasha Lane, who are probably young starlets that we should have heard of by now but who can keep track of them all? Anyway, one of them is caught making out the the prom queen, and gets thrown into one of those deadly pray-away-the-gay centers.
It’s based on a novel by Desiree Akhavan, who also wrote Appropriate Behavior, a movie about a bisexual Persian woman.
We don’t know much more about the movie, other than that it’s got John Gallagher Jr, who you didn’t see in Short Term 12, and Jennifer Ehle, who you missed in A Quiet Passion. It’s being shot by Ashley Connor, who worked on Tramps. Frankly, these all sound like made-up titles in a parody world of indi-Sundance, so we’re only like 95% sure it’s a real thing.
