Video: ScreenwritingU interviews writer/director Joel Edgerton on Boy Erased
ScreenwritingU sat down with Australian filmmaker Joel Edgerton to get his take on this emotional story. He writes and directs this film based on the memoir of Garrad Conley. In his early 20s, Conley personally experienced abuse at the hands of Love in Action, the fundamental Christian program for gays. Edgerton himself plays Victor Sykes, lead counselor at the gay conversion ministry who’s clearly in over his head.
