The Education of Shelby Knox

Lipschutz, Marion
A classic, award winning coming-of-age story set in Lubbock, TX, 15 year old Shelby Knox at first sees eye-to-eye with the strict, traditional Christians in her community regarding sexuality's place in her high school. But when she joins a fight over abstinence-only sex education, and a Gay-Straight-Alliance is banned, she confronts her pastor, her parents, and the beliefs she was brought up with. Over the next three years, we join her sometimes funny, often painful, journey of self-discovery that culminates in her emotional, political and religious transformation. PBS Point of View, Festival Awards at Sundance, Miami Gay & Lesbian, FullFrame, Sonoma, Human Rights Watch, featured at HotDocs, Tribeca, True/False, and more. “Lipschutz and Rosenblatt hit pure gold - watching Knox on her journey of self-realization is an illuminating and deeply satisfying experience.“ - The Hollywood Reporter “The movie is a pungent civics lesson on what can and cannot be accomplished by one plucky, idealistic girl.” - Critic’s Choice, The New York Times “A terrific documentary,” - The New Yorker
