‘Boy Erased’ leaves mark with tale of gay-conversion therapy

There’s plenty of big-name talent in “Boy Erased,” including the Australian triumvirate of Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe and director-writer-co-star Joel Edgerton. The film, however — based on Garrard Conley’s memoir about his experience with gay-conversion therapy — largely belongs to Lucas Hedges, in a movie that doesn’t oversell its message in exposing the damage such intolerance can inflict.
