If you’re a movie fan, you probably already know the name Lucas Hedges. The 21-year-old actor has shown off his acting skills recently with great performances in Manchester by the Sea, Lady Bird and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
He’s been at the Oscars the past two years, and he might be going back a third time for his work in the upcoming film, Boy Erased.
The film, directed by Joel Edgerton, is based on Garrard Conley’s memoir about his experience being sent to conversion therapy. Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman play the disapproving parents in the movie.
Some people might take one look at this film and think, ‘Well, this is just Oscar bait,” but it’s much more than that. It’s an important story that needs to be told, and we’re happy to see the cast & crew treated it with respect.
Boy Erased will hit select theaters November 2, 2018. You’ll want to watch this one, folks.
