Description

DirectorJoel Edgerton

It’s a Gay Essential:

Released in 2018, Boy Erased is the sophomore directorial effort from Joel Edgerton, based on Garrard Conley’s memoir of the same name. Lucas Hedges, in a Golden Globe nominated performance, plays Jared Eamons the son of a baptist preacher who willingly places himself into a gay conversion therapy program.  The motion picture stars Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe.

“The film’s sensitivity, though it is an ethical strength, is also a dramatic limitation. “Boy Erased” uses Jared’s story — which includes a high school attempt at heterosexual romance, a horrifying campus sexual assault and a chaste night spent in the bed of another man — primarily as a window into the issues raised by Conley’s book.”
   The New York Times

“It has the paranoid edge of a Seventies science fiction classic but gives way to something more like a homily. Rather than an exhortation to anger, it’s an invitation to think.”
   Eye For Film

“Boy Erased could almost pass for a prison movie. He has to surrender his possessions; toilet breaks are supervised, and a bus intermittently arrives to drop off long-stayers.”
