Boy Erased: Edgerton’s Coming Out Tale (KGBTQ, Gay)

Boy Erased, written and directed by Joel Edgerton, 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 the age of 19.

Faced with a serious dilemma, which soon becomes an ultimatum, Jared must attend a conversion therapy program or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, community, 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.
