Boy Erased is a poignant drama based on the memoir by Garrard Conley which follows a young man’s journey to self-acceptance. When sent for conversion therapy, he must make a choice between acknowledging his true self or conforming to family, friend and church expectations. The honest look at this dilemma with all its complexities and depths of emotions makes for a very touching and important story. This movie stars Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, and Russell Crowe. It received multiple award nominations including Golden Globes for Best Actor for Hedges and best Original Song for Revelation.
