Movie Night, showing “Boy Erased”

Join us Saturday, April 13th at 8 PM for a free screening of Boy Erased.

Thus 2018 movie stars Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, and Russell Crowe. This movie is based on a book of the same name written by Garrard Conley. The book and the movie deal with one person’s experience with Sexual Identity Conversion Therapy. It is told from Garrard’s point of view and the timeline jumps around a great deal. So it takes a little getting used to in order to get a coherent picture of the series of events. This is not an easy movie to watch, there are several very dramatic and uncomfortable scenes. Excellent performances all around, the movie received 35 nominations and won 6 of them. None from the Motion Picture Academy. Also featuring Joel Edgerton as Victor Sykes, the head of the Therapy compound. Edgerton also wrote the screenplay and directed.

We’ll hold a discussion afterwards that anyone may participate in. Popcorn will be provided, feel free to bring drinks and snacks to enjoy and/or share.
