Boy Erased
Boy Erased DVD - 2019 | Anamorphic widescreen edition

Eye opening. A shocking film in that I find it hard to understand that, in this day and age, people still think that LGBTQ can be prayed away, or "cured". Within this film there is NO portrayal or introduction of strong, stable homosexual relationships, of which there are many in today's society. The toll conversion therapy takes on our children and especially those within religious communities is shocking, especially during a time when most young adults are having some difficulties figuring out adulthood and who they are. I loved the fine line drawn between the mother's and father's reactions and the support given to the son - this was a fine, subtle yet powerful look at divergent opinions within a strong marriage.

This mostly Australian cast did a good job portraying southern Baptists.
