October 22, 2019
This take on teenage drama feels vague when pointing to the real issue and solving it in a short third act. This could have been so much better. [Full review in Spanish].

The result is a shockingly dull work. [Full review in Spanish]

The problem is that Desiree Akhavan and the screenwriter Cecilia Frugiuele... do not seem too interested in investigating the complex relationship between sexuality and identity. [Full review in Spanish]
November 3, 2018
As much as it sparks elsewhere, its central journey remains a frustrating missed opportunity.
October 29, 2018
Cliche-ridden and strangely aloof, Miseducation elicited little in the way of an emotional response from me beyond frustration.

This is undeniably Cameron Post's story, but as silent horrors befall other characters, I couldn't help wish the film was longer than its brisk 90 minute runtime in order to properly explore the emotional trauma more thoroughly.
September 16, 2018
A film that, independently of anything else it gets right or wrong, is at least slightly dismal as an aesthetic object.
September 6, 2018
The Miseducation of Cameron Post aspires to be a lot of things but the script lets it down.
August 17, 2018
While Moretz gives a quiet performance, and Sasha Lane does strong work, the movie itself has no fire, no energy.
August 17, 2018
While one shouldn't doubt the sincerity of this period drama about so-called gay conversion therapy, [it] isn't edgy or insightful enough to escape the lingering feel of a well-intentioned after-school special.
August 17, 2018
A timid drama with a passive voice that doesn't align with the importance of its subject matter.
August 16, 2018
The filmmakers probably counted on the natural charisma of Moretz to make up the difference, but it doesn't suffice, and Cameron, for a YA heroine, remains frustratingly hard to read.
August 13, 2018
Moretz is fine in the role, but the movie never really takes off. The agenda of the movie does come with good intentions, but the characters are underdeveloped and feel like caricatures.
August 9, 2018
This is essentially a movie about teenagers stuck in an overly strict summer camp, and watching youths quietly whiling away the hours in a detention center is not exactly scintillating conflict.
August 6, 2018
A handsomely retrofitted after-school movie.
August 3, 2018
Akhavan takes a restrained approach to chronicling Cameron's journey and Moretz is never up to the task of conveying any sense of inner struggle. The character is too static and feels too sure of herself for the movie to deliver the gut punch it should.
August 3, 2018
But the pervading problem of the movie is that it takes so much of this for granted-all the fraught, interpersonal weirdness between characters, or between the characters and the people who sent them here.
August 3, 2018
The film's refusal to produce a campy critique feels more like the product of lack of imagination than a purposeful repudiation.
August 1, 2018
Chloë Grace Moretz plays Cameron with such tasteful reserve, all blank stares and slightly agape mouth in the face of the most ardent down-is-up doctrine.
August 1, 2018
What a shame that this well-meaning and timely look at the absurdity of gay conversion camps - it won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance this year - lacks the teeth to make its points stick.
