Lucas Hedges in Boy Erased - New Trailer Available

Trailer Alert: Boy Erased

The trailer for Boy Erased is here to make you misty-eyed before the full film is released and invites us all to a major sob session. Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe star in this adaptation of the 2016 memoir by Garrard Conley, recounting his childhood in a fundamentalist Arkansas family who enrolled him in gay conversion therapy. These are some powerhouse performances, even just in the trailer snippets.


Boy Erased tells the story of Jared (Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed to his parents (Kidman and Crowe) at age 19. Jared is faced with an ultimatum: attend a gay conversion therapy program – or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith. The film (and the book on which it is based) is the true story of one young man’s struggle to find himself while being forced to question every aspect of his identity.

1:54 is the Inspirational Gay-Themed Sports Drama You Didn’t Know You Wanted

Breaking Glass Pictures will be releasing 1:54 in March. Starring Antoine-Olivier Pilon, the dazzling young French-Canadian actor who stole Xavier Dolan‘s 2014 art-house hit Mommy, the film held its world premiere at the Angouleme French-Language Film Festival where it walked away with the Best Actor and the Student’s Jury prize. An actor for most of his career, writer-director Yan England scored an Oscar nomination for his exceptional 21-minute short film Henry back in 2013. 1:54 marks his directorial debut for a feature film.


Tim (Pilon) is a shy sixteen-year-old athlete with a natural gift for running. He’s dealing not only with the recent loss of his mother, but also with his hidden sexuality. However, the last four years of high school have been tough on him mostly because of Jeff (Lou-Pascal Tremblay) and his crew. In his last year of school, Tim becomes sick and tired of feeling like a loser, and wants to shine for once. He decides to stand up to Jeff by dethroning him in the 800-meter championship, an event that Jeff is known for winning in school. But behind the competition and rivalry, a Tim’s secret longing is wreaking havoc. After a personal video is shared on social media, Tim’s private life explodes into the public eye. Soon Tim finds himself pushed to the edge because of the pressure he endures, an edge where human limits reach the point of no return.
