The film stars Oscar nominee Lucas Hedges and is directed by Joel Edgerton
Australian actor-filmmaker Joel Edgerton (The Gift) has recruited his country's finest actors for his sophomore directorial effort Boy Erased.
The drama centres on the topic of conversion therapy. Based off Garrard Conley's memoir of the same name, Three Billboards and Lady Bird actor Lucas Hedges stars as the teenage son of a US baptist pastor (Russell Crowe) and car salesman (Nicole Kidman) outed as gay.
His parents decide to send him to a conversion camp where a therapist (played by director Edgerton) tries to 'fix' him. Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea is seen in the trailer as a staff member at the camp.
