There will be a post show Q & A with Martha Conley, the mother of the author of Boy Erased, on Wednesday Nov. 28th @ 1pm.

Jared (Lucas Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, is outed to his parents (Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe) at age 19. Jared is faced with an ultimatum: attend a gay conversion therapy program – or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith.

"Boy Erased is a poignant family drama that explores the importance of unconditional love and acceptance of oneself and each other. Edgerton solidifies his triple-threat status, artfully and intelligently crafting a film that resonates with viewers and facilitates much-needed conversation during these trying times."
- Tiffany Tchobanian, Film Threat
"It deserves praise not as a polemic but as a richly humanistic, emotionally searing drama that sticks in the memory. "
- Stephen Farber, The Hollywood Reporter
"The Oscar-nominated Hedges is, as one would expect, superb in the title role, but performances across the board are excellent."
- Christopher Machell, CineVue
"Edgerton, who also plays the tightly wound chief of the conversion-therapy organization here, wrings devastating performances from his cast, including Lucas Hedges as Garrard, and Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman as his parents. "
- Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail
"Joel Edgerton’s earnest, solidly made film will be most effective on, and maybe necessary for, those immediately suffering under the crush of anti-gay bigotry, and those perpetrating it. "
- Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair
"If there is even one confused kid - or mother or father - who sees Boy Erased and gains an extra ounce of understanding as a result, then it will have done a real service."
- Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
"It's done with such evident love and sensitivity that it's hard to imagine a human being not connecting in some way, and perhaps even learning something along the way."
- Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press
"Edgerton has a lot to say with Boy Erased; it's a virtuous film. But Hedges is the movie's heartbeat."
- Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine
"Boy Erased resonates exactly because it treats everyone as a human being, complex and impossible to reduce to binaries."
- Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail
"'Boy Erased' is a good movie and also an important one, one that might save lives if enough young people find their way to it."
- Sasha Stone, TheWrap
