Check out the official plot synopsis of Boy Erased, the upcoming biography drama movie written and directed by Joel Edgerton based on the memoir by Garrard Conley:
“The film tells the story of Jared (Lucas Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed to his parents (Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe) at age 19. Jared is faced with an ultimatum: attend a gay 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.”
Well, maybe he should attend Saturday Church then?
The cast includes Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, Joel Edgerton, Russell Crowe, Xavier Dolan, Troye Sivan, Jesse LaTourette, Britton Sear, David Ditmore, Matt Burke, William Ngo, Lindsey Moser, Emily Hinkler, David Joseph Craig, and Victor McCay.
The release date of Boy Erased is set to September 28, 2018.
