After a teenager girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) gets caught making out with her girlfriend, she’s sent off to gay conversion camp. There, she’s subjected to religious discipline, but also finds sympathetic friends. The script delights in exposing the outrageous treatments and cruel concepts of this misguided approach, but it also presents a relatively rounded look at various “disciples” in the program. There’s considerable focus on making the story earnest. The performances help, but the film never reaches an emotionally-compelling level.  A personal complaint: from my limited experience, most of the people at these facilities are predictable stereotypes, but none of the males in this movie was especially effeminate nor the females that butch.

  1. I saw this in New York and I must say I think your take on it is exceptionally accurate and mirrors my own thoughts.
    Nice-
