Director and co-scripter Desiree Akhavan brings Emily M. Danforth’s seminal novel to life onscreen. It’s 1993 and Chloë Grace Moretz plays Cameron, a teenager who is in love with another girl but who has to hide this from the world. After getting found out, she is shipped off to a gay conversion therapy centre and banded together with other students who are trying to be ‘cured’. There’s a lot of heart in this story, with Moretz handing in a delicately powerful performance. The odd characters at the camp are all entertaining (especially John Gallagher Jr.as Reverend Rick and Emily Skeggs as Erin) and the screenplay co scripted by Akhavan and Cecilia Frugiuele sparks with energy and verve.
