Foyle Film Festival @ Foyle Pride: Boy Erased
Foyle Film Festival is delighted to once again collaborate with Foyle Pride to deliver an extended series of specially curated films as part of this year's Foyle Pride Festival. This year's Foyle Film Festival Summer Programme also marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots that sparked the beginning of the Gay Rights movement.
Jared Eamons, an Arkansas college student who is an avid runner and an aspiring writer, is also gay. Or rather, he is in the midst of figuring that out about himself - what it means, how he might act on it - when his panicked parents enrol him in a conversion therapy program designed to change, or at least suppress, his sexuality.
Nominated for 2 Golden Globes.
“A finely crafted piece of cinema which handles its explosive subject with great delicacy… It’s an invitation to think.” - Jennie Kermode, EyeForFilm
