BEAUTIFUL BOY
2018, Amazon Studios, 120 min, USA, Dir: Felix Van Groeningen

Belgian director Felix Van Groeningen’s (THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN) moving drama is based on the memoirs Beautiful Boy by David Sheff and Tweak by his son, Nic Sheff, offering two points of view on the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years. As father and son, Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet lead an outstanding cast that includes Maura Tierney and Amy Ryan. “Scrupulous and tenderly wounding - a drama that seizes and holds you. It’s a compelling movie whether or not it happens to speak to you personally, yet you can bet that a lot of people who have stood by and watched members of their families succumb to drug addiction are going to want to see it.” - Owen Gleiberman, Variety.
