Boy Erased

Director: Joel Edgerton
Starring: Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman, Lucas Hedges
Duration: 115 min

Jared (Hedges, Manchester By The Sea, Lady Bird) lives in a tightly knit, middle-class community in Arkansas, the only child of Marshall, (Crowe) a Baptist minister, and Nancy (Kidman). When Jared tells his parents he might be gay, they make him participate in all the horrors of a church-supported gay conversion programme. Designed to ‘reform’ men and women who think they’re gay, treatment can take days, weeks or many months. Writer-director Joel Edgerton plays the programme’s director Victor Sykes, who runs the place as a boot camp/rehab facility/ detention centre for which parents pay thousands of dollars. A starry cast give beautifully crafted and moving performances in this understated but powerful film.
