Film Unit Cinema in the Nelson Mandela Auditorium

Director: Desiree Akhavan Cast: Chloë Grace Moretz, Steven Hauck Country: USA Language: English In 1993, Cameron (Chloë Grace Moretz) is sent to a gay conversion centre to re-discover God after her conservative guardians discover her same-sex relationship. Rather than experiencing a new-found faith, she meets like-minded people, who help her discover who she really is. With its story based on an Emily Danforth book of the same name, the movie has been described as ‘a queer John Hughes film’ although it’s so much more than that. It’s an intense drama that speaks to everyone, regardless of age, featuring a terrific performance by Chloë Grace Moretz as she plays completely against type. The importance of seeing this film cannot be put into words.
