After smashing success at the Sundance Film Festival, The Miseducation of Cameron Post has finally been sold for distribution!
Months after queer youth story The Miseducation of Cameron Post won the prestigious U.S. dramatic grand jury prize at Sundance Film Festival, the film adaptation has finally clinched a distributor, FilmRise.
Based on the novel of the same name by Emily M. Danforth, the film follows a Montana teen living in the custody of ultra-conservative family members. After she’s caught getting hot and heavy with another girl on prom night, Cameron (Chloe Grace Moretz) is sent to a conversion therapy camp meant to help her “repent.” Instead, Cameron forms her own family among the misfits at the center.
“With ‘The Miseducation of Cameron Post,’ Desiree [Akhavan] has created a timely yet timeless, hilarious yet heart-wrenching story,” FilmRise CEO Danny Fisher told Variety. “We are proud to bring this powerful film from a rising director to wider audiences, in a time when the story is as profound and pertinent as ever.”
Though an exact release date has not been announced, the film is expected out sometime this summer.
