Nicole Kidman plays Nancy Eamons, Jared’s conflicted mother and the wife of Russell’s Baptist character Marshall Eamons. 

While Nancy loves her son, she struggles to come to terms with his homosexuality. 

Joel recently told news.com.au that he hopes the film will shed light on the extent of gay conversion therapy and become a ‘great conversation starter’.

‘On one hand it’s an identifier for young people to go, “I’m not alone; here’s a story I can identify with”,’ Joel began.

‘The other side of it is for parents, to educate parents about what someone else went through and the decisions they’ve made and how in the aftermath of that they realised that maybe they’d made a mistake and they’re both evolving in their own way. It’s a great conversation starter,’ he added. 

Boy Erased is released to cinemas in Australia on November 8
