‘Boy Erased’ In Cinemas 8th February 2019

‘Boy Erased’, in cinemas on 8th February 2019, tells the story of Jared, played by Lucas Hedges, the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed to his parents – played by Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe – at age 19.

Jared is faced with an ultimatum: attend a conversion therapy programme – or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith. ‘Boy Erased’ is the true story of one young man’s struggle to find himself while being forced to question every aspect of his identity.

‘Boy Erased’ is directed by Joel Edgerton, who stars as Victor Sykes in the film, and who also produced the film alongside Anonymous Content’s Kerry Kohansky-Roberts and Steve Golin, the Academy Award-winning producer of Best Picture Oscar winner ‘Spotlight’.

‘Boy Erased’ also features co-starring roles by Troye Sivan, Xavier Dolan, Cherry Jones, Michael “Flea” Balzary, Joe Alwyn, Emily Hinkler, Jesse LaTourette, David Joseph Craig, Théodore Pellerin, Madelyn Cline, and Britton Sear.

The film also features the new original song, ‘Revelation’, by Troye Sivan and Jónsi.

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
