Lucas Hedges plays Jared, the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town. When he is outed to his parents (Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe) at age 19, he is faced with an ultimatum: attend a conversion therapy program – or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith. The film also stars Cherry Jones, Joe Alwyn, Xavier Dolan, Flea and Joel Edgerton. The latter directed, produced and wrote the screenplay as well.
Troye Sivan appears in the film as a fellow gay man in the conversion program named Gary and also contributed a track. The 23-year-old singer teamed up with Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi for a beautiful piano ballad titled “Revelation.” I smell potential Oscar nomination for Best Original Song. Give it a spin below.
Boy Erased arrives November 2.
