When her guardians find out that their ward Cameron likes girls they take drastic steps – they send her to a Christian camp for gay conversion therapy. Set in the 1990s, this pleasing picture took the Grand Jury Prize in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at this year’s Sundance.


Synopsis

True, Cameron is dating a boy but she’s in love with a girl in her class. When she’s caught making out with her in the backseat of a car, her guardians take drastic steps – they send their ward to a Christian camp for gay conversion therapy. Set in the 1990s, this adaptation of the Emily Danforth coming-of-age novel, which offers up a variation on the queer comedy But I’m a Cheerleader, took the Grand Jury Prize in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at this year’s Sundance. The film pleases for nailing its pop-culture references to the given era, but also for its message: being an outsider is no reason to think of yourself as inferior. Actually, quite the reverse: let your freak flag fly!
