Prime Gentlemen/SAGE of South Florida present ‘Boy Erased’ at 1:30 pm at the Pride Center (2040 N. Dixie Highway, Wilton Manors). A pair of devout Arkansas parents (Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe) whose faith is challenged when they discover that their son Jared (Lucas Hedges) may be gay. Jared himself doesn’t know, which, perhaps is the most honest thing the film depicts. Jared wants nothing more than to be “normal” but frightened by his attraction to other boys and desperate to “x” what is wrong with him, he enrolls in a ‘conversion’ program. In the end, Jared tells his father what their relationship must be like: two men—one young and newly free with self-discovery, the other old and needing to reconsider toxic, long held ideals and trying to lurch forward together. This is a free event with soda and popcorn served during the movie.
