The trailer is out for The Miseducation of Cameron Post.
The story follows Chloe Grace Moretz as Cameron Post, a girl who was caught having sex with the prom queen. She was then sent off to a gay-conversion therapy center.
As Deadline reports, the center for teens is run by Dr. Lydia Marsh (Jennifer Ehle) and her brother Reverend Rick (John Gallagher Jr.), who’s a “conversion success” himself.
Despite the pressures of the center, Cameron Post makes friends with some of other teens. Sasha Lane plays amputee Jane while Forrest Goodluck plays “the Lakota Two-Spirit” Adam. Together, the three form a found family and learn about self-acceptance.
The first official U.S. Trailer for the film has dropped and you can watch it down below.
Earlier this year, we shared with you the first word about The Miseducation of Cameron Post. At the time, the film was making its rounds at indie film festivals like Sundance. At that specific festival, the movie ended up winning the Grand Jury Prize in the U.S. Dramatic Competition.
The film is directed by Desiree Akhavan who also co-wrote the script, along with Celilia Frugiuele, which was adapted from a novel by Emily M. Danforth.
The film is set to release in selected U.S. cities on August 3.
