Boy Erased staring Nicole Kidman, Lucas Hedges, and Russell Crowe is set to be released in theaters on Thursday, November 2, 2018.
The film is an age-old tale of a gay youth stifled by his family’s religious constraints. But this true story film is so much more than the simple tale that a good majority of us have heard time and time over.
It can be said that all stories bare similarities in nature but as we all know by way of life no two stories are identical. The nuances that envelope each unique story are the key components to that particular life journey.
Yes, Boy Erased deals with a strained love between a boy (Lucas Hedges) and his mother (Nicole Kidman) and father (Russell Crowe). Yes, Boy Erased encompasses time spent in a gay conversion therapy camp. And yes, Boy Erased deals with a young love.
But what it also contains is raw emotions, heartfelt truths and a sense of compassion that tugs at the heartstrings and releases the warmth that radiates from within ourselves.
The film captures your sense of belonging no matter who you are and places you in the mind frame of caring for your fellow man. It’s a window into the depths of humanity regardless of if you have ever faced issues similar to that in the movie.
A mother’s love, a father’s grief, and a son’s burden. If anything you come away from the film understanding the pain each person respectively struggles with when in an environment of hostility and intolerance.
