Chloe Grace Moretz is sent to a Christian gay-conversion camp in the official trailer for the Sundance-winning drama "The Miseducation of Cameron Post."

The 1993-set coming-of-age film, which hails from actress/writer/director Desiree Akhavan (Appropriate Behaviour), is based on Emily M. Danforth's debut novel about a young teenage girl named Cameron Post (played by Moretz), who, after being caught kissing a girl on prom night, is shuttled off to a Christian youth camp in Montana, where she is forced to undergo gay-conversion therapy.

While butting heads with the camp's main counselors, Christian therapist Dr. Lydia Marsh (The Looming Tower's Jennifer Ehle) and her brother, Reverend Rick (10 Cloverfield Lane's John Gallagher Jr.), Cameron finds herself forming a tight bond with a couple of fellow misfits -- a care-free stoner (American Honey's Sasha Lane), and a Lakota teen (The Revenant's Forrest Goodluck).

Co-adapted by Akhavan and her writing partner Cecilia Frugiuele, "The Miseducation of Cameron Post," which took home a Grand Jury Prize at this year's Sundance, will be released theatrically in select cities beginning August 3rd.

synopsis:
From writer/director Desiree Akhavan and based on the celebrated novel by Emily M. Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post follows Cameron (Chloe Grace Moretz) as she is sent to a gay conversion therapy center after getting caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night. Run by the strict and severe Dr. Lydia Marsh (Jennifer Ehle) and her brother, Reverend Rick (John Gallagher Jr.) -- himself an example of how those in the program can be "cured" -- the center is built upon repenting for "same sex attraction." In the face of intolerance and denial, Cameron meets a group of fellow sinners including the amputee stoner Jane (Sasha Lane), and her friend, the Lakota Two-Spirit, Adam (Forrest Goodluck). Together, this group of teenagers form an unlikely family as they fight to survive.
