Angelika New York: Q&A Friday 11/2 following the 7:00pm show with Boy Erased memoir author Garrard Conley
Director/writer Joel Edgerton's newest film centers on Jared (Lucas Hedges, MANCHESTER BY THE SEA), the 19-year-old son of a small town Baptist pastor. After being outed to his parents (Nicole Kidman and Russel Crowe), Jared is faced with an ultimatum: attend a gay conversion therapy program – or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith. Based on Garrard Conley's true story, BOY ERASED is a gripping exploration of a young man’s struggle to find himself while being forced to question every aspect of his identity.
