Boy Erased (2018)

Boy Erased is the story of a young man whose mother Nancy, (Nicole Kidman) and father Marshall Eamons (Russell Crowe) are overly concerned about his sexuality.  Hence and via the misguided tutelage of elders, this poor guy, Jared Eamons (Lucas Hedges) is made subject to gay conversation therapy, at its worst.  The abuses are a true abomination.

This is a snot-fest.  Jared is so helpless and laid-back.  He takes all of this in stride, until he simply cannot.

Quotes:

Pastor Wilkes: Nobody talks about the Therapy outside (of) the Therapy!

Victor: Adapt to survive.

Victor: Become the man you are not.
