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]

Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 18, 2019
The film is extremely well written and well performed making this story feel all the more powerful. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 18, 2019
The film's attempt to humanize all parties lessens the power of the statement it's trying to make. It avoids the deeper implications of the abusive practice it's addressing.
Full Review | Original Score: 68/100
March 18, 2019
An essential film that helps sensitize the public about the sexual freedom of human beings. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
March 14, 2019
Edgerton also wisely does not give in to the temptation of painting Jared's parents as one-dimensional, evil beings. Both Kidman and Crowe give them depth and nuance.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 13, 2019
Joel Edgerton tackles gay conversion therapy with the powerful film. One of the best movies you'll see this year.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
February 26, 2019
Packs a poignent punch, but could have delved deeper.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 19, 2019
It's a flat film... almost immobile. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
February 15, 2019
[A] harrowing but necessary reflection of the bigotry still present in our society...
Full Review | Original Score: 8.5/10
February 14, 2019
Boy Erased is careful to humanise Jared's parents as loving, but wrongheaded. If anything, it's too respectful of their damaging views.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 13, 2019
The worst violence we do, we justify in the name of love.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
