The trailer for Desiree Akhavan’s coming-of-age drama The Miseducation of Cameron Post is here, and it’s as heartfelt as we expected.

Based on the 2012 novel by Emily M. Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post takes place in 1993 and follows teen Cameron Post (played by Chloë Grace Moretz), who is forced to attend a gay conversation camp after she is caught in the backseat of the car with the high school prom queen. Cameron soon finds herself navigating the camp run by strict religious owners (Jennifer Ehle and John Gallagher Jr.). Thankfully, with the help of her fellow "sinner" friends, Jane (Sasha Lane) and Adam (Forrest Goodluck), Cameron soon learns to fight the horrific tactics employed and embrace her sexual identity. It's touching, to say the least.

An essential watch, this poignant film sheds a light on the delusional reality of this “treatment” and the struggle many queer teens still face. The movie will be released in select cities on August 3.

Watch the trailer, below.
