Boy Erased not to be Screened in Dutch Cinemas

Boy Erased, the much-praised new drama starring Nicole Kidman and Russel Crowe, will not be screened in Dutch cinemas.

Distributor, Universal Pictures planned to release the movie at the beginning of February, just in time for the Oscars, but the decision was taken not to release the movie. When asked the reason, a spokesman said “The movie has proven to be commercially unviable in countries where it has already been released”. The planned release in Belgium has also been cancelled.

Boy Erased tells the true story of a gay boy who is sent to a Christian Reform Camp by his parents in the hope of making him straight. The parents are portrayed by Nicole Kidman and Russel Crowe; the boy by Lucas Hedges. Supporting roles are by Xavier Dolan, Troye Sivan and Flea, who is best known as the bassist from The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The movie received rave reviews, and according to insiders may even be nominated for a few Oscars, including best actress for Nicole Kidman. So far, the movie has only taken 5 million dollars worldwide at the box-office; a disappointing result.
