Lucas Hedges Stars in Conversion Therapy Drama 'Boy Erased'

This movie directed by Joel Edgerton looks like an almost certain tearjerker, and Focus Features recently moved its release date from late September to November 2nd, which is a definite push for awards consideration, so they must think it's pretty strong. I would guess in the acting categories, since Hedges has been good since he was first noticed (and Oscar nominated) for Manchester By the Sea, and his parents in this are played by Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman. Edgerton also wrote the script, which is based on a memoir by Garrard Conley, about his experience in gay conversion therapy after his parents wouldn't accept his sexuality.
