Boy Erased ★★

A jarring turn early in the 2nd act briefly sheds the ABC Family-esque surface, and for about 20 minutes it's as powerful and moving as it should be. Unfortunately, this dissipates and only remnants of the far better film it could have been emerge every so often. I was hoping to at least like this better than The Miseducation of Cameron Post which I found serviceable though surprisingly neutered, but it feels like Edgerton isn't confident in the material or his audience.
