A deeply disturbing and uncomfortable watch. Lucas Hedges gives a deeply rooted, present performance. Nicole Kidman's role is the pivot of this piece, and, unsurprisingly, she completely embodies the compassion and love needed. Russell Crowe does well with what he is given, but this is where I think the film fails - it never sees the father's crisis of faith and oversimplifies a very complex internal battle by characterizing faith as judgemental, manipulative and ultimately hateful, so it gave Crowe very little to work with (I think this was the unresolved issue of the author - he never really sees his father, and so that story is never told or the crisis resolved). Personally, I'm still waiting for a film that faithfully brings both real crises to the screens. I give this film a 7 (good) out of 10, but the whole story remains untold. [Drama]

Intensely powerful; this is yet another statement on how some people in the Christian faith fail to understand homosexuality. As a Christian myself, and as somebody who has struggled with his own sexuality, this film resonated with me, especially in relation to the misplaced judgements that some people in the church have imposed upon me. A very good film and one that should be seen, regardless of your faith or sexuality - its message of tolerance is a universal one.

Boy Erased was amazing. Incredibly tragic story. It felt like a remake of Full Metal Jacket at times, were it not a true story. Great cast. You know who deserves the nod for best supporting actor? Flea. Incredible asshole presence. Good luck not crying. 9/10

Lucas Hedges really is one of the most talented young actors working today. Really gives a great performance here. Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe are really good too. This can be very uncomfortable at times and the moral is kinda obvious at this point but still important.

Yet another anticipated film from an actor-turned-director is Boy Erased, the work of Golden Globe nominee Joel Edgerton, who wrote and stars in the film.

The flick follows the recently outed son of a Baptist preacher, Jared (Lucas Hedges), after he’s forced to partake in the church’s gay con More
