Focus Features has shared a batch of First Look images for their upcoming biographical drama BOY ERASED. Directed and writen by BRIGHT and GRINGO star Joel Edgerton, and based on based on the novel Boy Erased: A Memoir of Identity, Faith and Family by Garrard Conley, the upcoming film tells the story of Jared (Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed to his parents (Kidman and Crowe) at age 19.
