About this event
1993: Teenager Cameron is in love with one of her female classmates. When the pair get caught in a moment of intimacy at a high-school dance, she’s quickly packed up and sent to a conversion therapy centre that treats teens “struggling with same-sex attraction.”
At the facility, Cameron is subjected to outlandish discipline, dubious “conversion” methods, and earnest Christian rock songs. Despite the stated aims of the facility, Cameron finds camaraderie and solidarity with her fellow outcasts, learning how to navigate and survive an intolerant world.

Desiree Akhavan’s fantastic adaptation of Emily Danforth’s novel premiered to immediate critical praise at Sundance 2018, where it won the Grand Jury Prize. Gripping, tender and profoundly humane, it depicts the horrifying reality of conversion therapy. This type of ‘therapy’ has come to the fore during the Trump administration, having reportedly been supported in previous years by former Indiana Governor, now Vice President, Mike Pence. This is an important film that may offer support and solace to gay teens for years to come.
“An outstanding turn by Chloe Grace Moretz… It is far and away the best thing she’s done”
Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian
