The Telluride Film Festival is small, quick, and up in the mountains and is the bona fide beginning of the Oscar season. It has debuted almost every single film that has won best picture in the past decade. And I have no doubt that “Boy Erased” will continue in this noted trajectory.
It is about gay conversion therapy. Hedges, the boy of the title, is sent to a camp where this is abominable treatment is practiced.
“Boy Erased” stands out among all the other titles announced today. You can see them all at http://www.awardsdaily.com.
“Boy Erased” will also be shown at TIFF. As will “Beautiful Boy,” the Timothee Chalamet/Steve Carrell starrer about drug addiction, which is also heavily Oscar buzzed.
I myself will be covering the New York Film Festival come September…which actually is beginning REAL soon.
Exciting titles abound. I can’t wait!
