Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, and Russell Crowe star in Joel Edgerton's adaptation of Garrard Conley’s memoir.

Boy Erased tells the courageous story of Jared Eamons (Lucas Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who must overcome the fallout of being outed to his parents (Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe). His parents struggle with reconciling their love for their son with their beliefs. Fearing a loss of family, friends, and community, Jared is pressured into attending a conversion therapy program. While there, Jared comes into conflict with its leader (Joel Edgerton) and begins his journey to finding his own voice and accepting his true self.

"The film boasts a range of great performances by fine actors, including the up-and-coming and soon to be ubiquitous Lucas Hedges." — Bruce DeMara, Toronto Star
