Russel Crowe, Nicole Kidman and Lucas Hedges (Manchester By the Sea) form an amazing pack of talent in this excellent drama. Crowe plays the father, a priest, and Kidman the mom, a religious person as well. When their son comes out as gay, they decide more or less with his acceptance to send him to a conversion therapy center. The movie is about the experience of the center but it’s also about the family dynamic as a whole. Also stars Joel Edgerton, who also adapted the screenplay (a true story) and directed the movie.
Great movie! Emotional roller coaster, I love how they told this story about a harsh reality. ** I stood and I applauded for Nicole Kidman’s character
This make sense!
I love this movie
A simple movie about a complex reality. Even today, many parents don't understand that they're wrong to prevent their kids from being who they are. That's what this movie shows.
It's hard to believe there are hideous organizations like this. The movie pisses you off more and more as the story unravels and these children are scarred for life.
