Boy Erased movie poster

As if one feature per lifetime on the dodo-headed topic of conversion therapy weren’t enough, make room for 2018’s second big screen crusade to make bank off of public-spirited homophobe Mike Pence’s pet project. The first thing the viewer notices is an overall aversion on the part of the characters to pay a light bill. It’s 10 o’clock on a Sunday morning, and the family kitchen is darker than Don Corleone’s study on Connie’s wedding day. At least the narratively miseducational Cameron Post had a few unintentional laughs to help pass the time. Writer/director/co-star Joel Edgerton refuses to allow one contrary ray of sunshine to cloud his seemingly well-meant vision. Or is this less about compassion, human rights, and storytelling than it is down with actors looking to win prizes? If you know someone who is thinking of putting their kid though one of these programs, buy them a ticket. If not, what’s the point? Review filed; Boy Erased degaussed for good. With Lucas Hedges, Russell Crowe, and Nicole Kidman. 2018.
