Boy Erased (Der verlorene Sohn)
USA, 2018 | Length: 115min | FSK: 12 | Director: Joel Edgerton Cast: Lucas Hedges, Joel Edgerton, Russell Crowe

Joel Edgerton ("The Gift", "Loving") once again proves himself a gifted filmmaker with this complex, well-crafted, and powerfully performed drama that presents a simmering, elegantly helmed glimpse into a deeply disturbing practice still in use in some places. Based on Garrard Conley's 2016 memoir of the same name, this deeply affecting drama tells the story of Jared (Hedges; "Manchester by the Sea"), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed as being gay to his parents (Kidman and Crowe) at age 19. Jared is faced with an ultimatum: attend a conversion therapy program - or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith. Engaging, emotional and earnest, this is the true story of one young man's struggle to find himself while being forced to question every aspect of his identity.
