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.
“To its great credit, “Boy Erased” never reduces Jared’s parents to monolithic, backwards-thinking caricatures.” – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
“Edgerton proves an incisive filmmaker. Every beat has weight. Every close-up registers. He values silence – he trusts you to feel things along with his characters.” – New York Magazine
