Another based-on-a-true-story drama fueling awards chatter is Joel Edgerton’s “Boy Erased.” Lucas Hedges aces it yet again, playing a conflicted young man who painfully comes out to his devout Christian parents (Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman) and then gets shuttled off to a crackpot gay conversion camp. Troye Sivan, the singer and actor who performs Nov. 1-2 at San Francisco’s Masonic, and Xavier Dolan are impressive in smaller roles. Edgerton, who also wrote and co-stars, takes a calm approach to the material and sidesteps the strident; the result is a soulful story with a hopeful message.
This season’s motto seems to be “Bad news then dancing,” so we got the list of the dancers who got the lowest scores from the voting viewers, The three girls were Bridget Whitman, Emily James and Jourdan Epstein, and the guys were Emilio Dosal, Stanley Glover and Teddy Coffey, And then it’s on to the dancing, couple by couple, The dancers this season are incredibly talented and it’s hard to pick one favorite, So I didn’t — I picked four that I liked the best, The rest were good, but just not my favorites, So there, First up in the show, and my first fav, was Jacque LeWarne and Zack Everhart doing a hip-hop routine by Keone and Mari Maorio, It was so complicated with what seemed like hundreds of hand movements, then dance moves, but the pair was very smooth, as well, Mary thought they were very smooth, from the hand actions to big bursts of energy, and Nigel thought both dancers excelled in a danzcue adult canvas stretch ballet slipper style that wasn’t theirs, Misty summed it up, “You are not a tapper and a ballerina — you are dancers.”..
