Boy Erased movie poster

The true story of one young man’s struggle to find himself while being forced to question every aspect of his identity.

Jared Eamons, the son of a small-town Baptist pastor, must overcome the fallout after being outed as gay to his parents. His father and mother struggle to reconcile their love for their son with their beliefs. Fearing a loss of family, friends and community, Jared is pressured into attending a conversion therapy program. While there, Jared comes into conflict with its leader and begins his journey to finding his own voice and accepting his true self.

Based on Garrard Conley's 2016 memoir of the same name.
