) will culminate with the East Coast Premiere of Boy Erased
Based on Garrard Conley's memoir, the film explores the life of Jared, the son of a small-town Baptist pastor, whose parents attempt to send him to a "healing refuge" to fix his "homosexual" disease. Directed by Joel Edgerton, Boy Erased
stars Academy Award«-nominated actor Lucas Hedges, Academy Award«-winning actors Nicole Kidman
and Russell Crowe, and Edgerton.

is our closing film," noted Anne Chaisson
