Set amongst a backdrop of insidious emotional manipulation and subtle, self-hate inducing abuse, 'The Miseducation Of Cameron Post (2018)' is a low-key character-drama that excels at letting itself play out in an unexaggerated, 'realistic' way. It condemns its central situation - and specifically the very real institutions and mindsets that it showcases - simply by portraying it in as honest a way as possible, thereby allowing the audience to come to their own, hopefully universal conclusions about the underhanded evil on display (whether or not it's perpetrators know it to be so). However, the opportunity for social-commentary such a setting provides isn't quite as capitalised on as you might expect, since the judgement of its antagonistic characters and thought-processes very much rests on its audience's shoulders. In this way, it almost feels like it lacks the punch to properly sink into the issues on display. Yet, the lack of 'hand-holding' is also appreciated and the viewer is given perhaps more agency than usual. All in all, the almost 'back-seat' approach works for the genre but it's still a double-edged sword. It also applies to the character development, too, as so much of it is internal that one could mistake it for being absent. However, our lead undertakes a distinct and impactful journey. It usually occurs behind her eyes, out of our vision, but emerges in several key yet somewhat indirect moments to make for a wholistic and believable self-discovery. It could've perhaps been given some more room to breathe, alongside a few extra scenes dedicated to inner turmoil in order to make it perhaps more tangible, but is representative of the flick's overall 'laid-back', 'closed-off' vibe. The few moments when it bursts to the fore are powerful, too. The performances are universally great and Moretz is fantastic in the down-played lead role. Everything's generally so subtle, though, and that makes most of the movie a rather 'floaty' affair; there's only so much investment possible when everyone is so guarded and secretive. Still, the overall experience is entertaining, engaging and, sometimes, somewhat upsetting (seeing what these characters have to go through, which is still happening in our world right now, is tough at times). It's a picture that leaves you hopeful but actually has slight, somewhat intangible sting in the tail. There's plenty to like here, but perhaps more could've been done with the material. 6/10

A low-key character drama that lacks a little punch.Reviewed byPjtaylor-96-138044Vote: 6/10
Throughout the film, I was trying to figure out what's the reason behind making this film now. It's about gay Christian conversion camp set in 1993 and tells us what absolutely everyone (or at least people who this film is aimed at) in 2018 knows - conversion doesn't work. It would make more sense if it would be set in this day and age and would be showing conversion camps that still exist; but a 25 year-old-story is at the same time not old enough to be showing a piece of history, and not recent enough to be relevant to the current state of society.
It also doesn't put a new spin on the story - if anything, it feels like almost the same plot as But I'm a Cheerleader (made in 1999). If the latter would be made today, it would be presented as a parody of Miseducation of CP, as it is a very campy comedy, however, it hits most of the same plot points. My only guess to why this film was made now is that films like this are able to get famous names and thus a more mainstream audience (like with Love, Simon earlier this year), allowing telling stories that were previously aimed at - and seen only by - a narrow group of people; and that someone wanted to do some nice sex scenes in a Christian environment. Now those were worth seeing!
This movie promised much but delivered little. It tackles the disturbing subject of homophobic religious fundamentalists and their 'pray the gay away' concentration camps without ever delving too deeply into the psychological traumas that these programmes cause in their 'disciples'. The cast are excellent throughout, but too many of them are portraying peripheral characters that remain under-developed. The ending is vague and unsatisfying, and while leaving storylines unresolved can be a strength in some movies, it feels like a weakness here. I would have liked more. This book might have been better adapted for television.
