Author Garrard Conley and Director Joel Edgerton are by DaniElle DeLaite for the movie adaptation of Garrard’s book Boy Erased. The film played very well across the world on the festival circuit and the cast have talked often about why it was essential that they make this film, and why now is the right time.

It stars Edgerton, along with Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, Xavier Dolan, Troye Sivan, Jesse LaTourette and Britton Sear. Below you’ll find DaniElle’s interview with the writer and director/actor, and below that we have clips from our red carpet interviews in Toronto earlier in the year. We also have an extended interview with Garrard Conley which you can find here.

Boy Erased is released on the 2nd of November, 2018 in the US and on the 8th of February, 2019 in the UK.
