Boy Erased tells the true coming of age and coming out story of Jared Eamons (Lucas Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a rural, small American town who is viciously outed to his parents (Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe) at age 19.
Fearing a loss of family, friends, and church, Jared is pressured into attending a conversion therapy programme. While there, Jared comes into conflict with its head therapist (Joel Edgerton) and begins his journey to finding his own voice and accepting his true self.
The Boy Erased screenplay was penned by Joel Edgerton and inspired by Garrard Conley’s true-life coming of age and coming out memoir titled Boy Erased: A Memoir of Identity, Faith, and Family.
Boy Erased will be screened today and tomorrow and on March 31 at 8.30pm at Spazju Kreattiv Cinema, St James Cavalier, Valletta.
