Starting this year, Lead Them Home is compiling a series of movie kits to help guide Christian discussion on a series of new and upcoming films on Christian and LGBT+ topics.

Today, we release our movie kit on Boy Erased, in theaters November 2. Use the link to access the digital PDF.*

Earlier this year, we released a movie kit on The Miseducation of Cameron Post.

About Boy Erased

Boy Erased is a film based on Garrard Conley’s 2016 written memoir of the same name. Directed by Joel Edgerton, the film stars Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, and Joel Edgerton himself. Lucas Hedges plays Jared Eamons, the son of Baptist parents who is forced to take part in a gay conversion therapy program.

The film had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival on September 1, its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 11, and will have its U.S. releases on November 2, by Focus Features. The movie is expected to have a wide reach.

As Christians, we are called to engage with our world critically, compassionately, and winsomely. Our knowledge of the film and its themes could help us to consider our role as missionaries to the LGBT+ community, as well as act as a catalyst to guide ourselves and other believers toward a godly discernment about sexuality, conversion therapy, and Christian hope.
