Jared Eamons, the son of a small-town Baptist pastor, must overcome the fallout after being outed as gay to his parents. His father and mother struggle to reconcile 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 and begins his journey to finding his own voice and accepting his true self.

Director Joel Edgerton follows on from his thrilling and incredibly underseen directorial debut The Gift with Boy Erased, brought to the screen by Edgerton and based off of Garrard Conley’s book by the same name.

Second Trailer for 'Boy Erased' Starring Lucas Hedges & Nicole Kidman

"You may have to walk away from everything..." Focus Features has debuted the second official trailer for Boy Erased, an adaptation of the book of the same name by Garrard Conley. The story is about the son of a baptist preacher who is forced to participate in a church-supported gay conversion program - similar to the one also seen in The Miseducation of Cameron Post. Boy Erased is directed by Australian actor-filmmaker Joel Edgerton (also of The Gift previously), who also wrote the script, and stars in the film. The main cast includes Lucas Hedges (from Manchester by the Sea) as Jared, with Nicole Kidman & Russell Crowe as his parents, plus Xavier Dolan, Troye Sivan, Jesse Latourette, Britton Sear, David Ditmore, Matt Burke, and William Ngo. This has been playing at a few film festivals this fall, and it's a damn fine film. Highly recommended, especially as an example of how blasphemous these programs are.
