The heart-rending drama Boy Erased tells the courageous story of Jared Eamons (Lucas Hedges, Manchester by the Sea, Lady Bird), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town who must overcome the fallout of being outed to his parents at age 19. His parents (Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe) 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 (writer/director Joel Edgerton, The Gift) and begins his journey to finding his own voice and accepting his true self. Inspired by Garrard Conley's true-life coming of age and coming out memoir.
