Boy Erased 123 Full Movie Plot & Release Dates.
Texting with a colleague after the world premiere of the gay conversion drama Boy Erased here in Telluride, I told him I liked the movie, but that it didn’t tell me anything new. Which I immediately realized wasn’t really fair; who cares, really, what it tells me—a long-out gay adult doing fine—personally? Joel Edgerton’s earnest, solidly made film will be most effective on, and maybe necessary for, those immediately suffering under the crush of anti-gay bigotry, and those perpetrating it. Screening the film to the Telluride audience is a bit of a preach to the choir, so to speak—so I hope the film will somehow reach those it might truly rattle, comfort, and change.
Adapted from Garrad Conley’s best-selling memoir, Boy Erased follows 18-year-old Jared, son of a pastor, as he enters an outpatient conversion-therapy program perversely called Love in Action. Jared is played by Lucas Hedges, a resourceful young actor who here locates the quiet confusion, yearning, and pain of the closet. All that trauma is especially acute given Jared’s intensely religious upbringing, his loving and (they think) well-meaning parents further compounding his anguish in their attempts to help him. The parents are played sensitively and without Bible-Belt caricature by a wet-eyed Russell Crowe and an ornately bewigged Nicole Kidman. This fine trio work in rich concert, elevating the fairly standard-issue material to poignant highs.
There’s strong acting within the Love in Action facility as well, especially from Edgerton himself, who perfectly calibrates the mentor-monster duality of the program’s director. The supporting cast is eclectic—rocker Flea, nascent gay pop icon Troye Sivan (who has a lovely original song in the film), and Québécois actor-director Xavier Dolan all appear—and each contributes a powerful or persuasive moment or two. Edgerton has built his movie well, a kind of prestige version of the issues dramas we used to associate with basic cable.
