...in the end it feels too lofty and self-important and the stakes never feel high enough. There are two major reasons to see "Boy Erased": Lucas Hedges and Nicole Kidman.
March 18, 2020
Boy Erased entertains while putting forth its moral lessons in a way that isn't didactic, giving it an uncanny superpower in a world so frequently devoid of empathy: the potential to change minds rather than just dismissing them.
February 6, 2020
A film that mostly feels like a series of moments, rather than a coherent trajectory.

Boy Erased exists to shine a light on the horrors of conversion therapy. It does so very effectively.
September 26, 2019
Boy Erased has noble intentions and a good heart, but it leaves nary an imprint. And, for a film with such inherently harrowing and emotionally charged subject matter, that is almost unforgivable.
August 23, 2019
The director put together an exceptional ensemble. [Russell] Crowe and [Lucas] Hedges are remarkable and [Nicole] Kidman is incredible as the Mother who finally stands up for herself and chooses love over dogma.
August 19, 2019
A well-acted and moving drama that nevertheless traffics in the 'no shades of gray' neo-fundamentalism of contemporary progressivism.
August 6, 2019
As a piece of cinema, it lacks that extra emotional drive that pushes a film from memorable to unforgettable
July 29, 2019
That's what's inspiring about watching Boy Erased amidst our current divided culture. Despite the violence and very real fear of losing everything around him, Jared doesn't back down.
June 5, 2019
An accomplished and mature film, with an assured directorial hand from Edgerton. Hedges embodies the effects of moral conflict perfectly, and crowns what is a fine, necessary film.

This was a difficult movie to review for such reasons. But such reactions make this an important movie that everyone should seek out immediately.

No child is an island, but neither are the parents.
April 8, 2019
A film that reduces an atrocious reality... to the premise of a tear-jerking story. [Full review in Spanish]
April 8, 2019
A film of pure psychological horror, with a staging full of sensitivity and discretion. [Full Review in Spanish]
April 6, 2019
It is told in a gray and conventional way, there is no force or complexity or shudder in its unmemorable images, but keeps you watching is its impressive performances. [Full Review in Spanish]
April 4, 2019
Boy Erased is a well-balanced film that knows how to explore this theme without unnecessary dramatic beats. [Full Review in Spanish]
April 4, 2019
Ultimately, Boy Erased misses too many of its own revelations...
April 2, 2019
Writer/director Joel Edgerton's confident pacing as well as his control of the plot development contribute to his (and Garrad Conley's) gripping narrative.
March 28, 2019
Edgerton shows that he can adapt to more or less rigid tones, and bring those tones closer to audiences. [Full Review in Spanish]
