Appropriate Behaviour director Desiree Akhavan’s adaptation of Emily Danforth’s novel was one of the standout titles at Sundance. Depicting the horrifying reality of conversion therapy, which has risen to the fore during the Trump administration, having reportedly been supported in previous years by former Indiana Governor, now Vice President Mike Pence, the film is an exquisite and compassionate hybrid of an institutional drama and a summer camp film. Chloë Grace Moretz is outstanding in the central role.
