Due out in cinemas in November 2018, Boy Erased stars Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe and was written for the screen and directed by Joel Edgerton, based on the book Boy Erased: A Memoir of Identity, Faith and Family by Garrard Conley.
Boy Erased tells the story of Jared, the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed to his parents at age 19. Jared is faced with an ultimatum: attend a conversion therapy program – or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith.
Boy Erased is the true story of one young man’s struggle to find himself while being forced to question every aspect of his identity and the trailer looks great. It has also been trending on YouTube with 4m views in just one day.
