Highly Suspect Reviews: Boy Erased

0 Submitted by on Thu, 08 November 2018, 12:26

Joel Edgerton heads behind the camera for the second time with this film Boy Erased, based on the memoir by Garrard Conley detailing his experience with his family making him go to a gay conversion therapy program. With Lucas Hedges as Garrard, Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman as his parents, and Joel Edgerton himself as the head of the conversion program, you’re looking at a real powerhouse cast. But are we talking ABC Family Special stuff here or a powerfully moving drama? Chris, Frank, and Elliott are here to tell you about it.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
