On August 3, 2018, The Miseducation of Cameron Post made its official U.S. debut in New York, NY. The film adaptation of a 2012 young-adult fiction novel by Emily M. Danforth, the film is an historical fiction about Cameron Post, a teen girl in the early 90s who is sent by her parents to a conversion therapy camp after she and the high school prom queen are caught sleeping together.
At the Sundance Film Festival, the movie won the U.S. Grand Jury prize, the festival’s highest honor.
As Christians, we are called to engage with our world critically, compassionately, and winsomely. Our knowledge of the film and its themes could help us to consider our role as missionaries to the LGBT+ community, as well as act as a catalyst to guide ourselves and other believers toward a godly discernment about sexuality, conversion therapy, and Christian hope.
Starting this year, Lead Them Home will be compiling a series of movie kits to help guide Christian discussion on a series of upcoming films on Christian and LGBT+ topics, including Cameron Post and Boy Erased (slated to release November 2018).
