Based on the memoir “Beautiful Boy” by David Sheff and “Tweak” by his son, Nic Sheff, Beautiful Boy chronicles the true and inspiring experience of survival and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years.
Fresh from his breakout role in Call Me by Your Name, Academy Award nominee Timothée Chalamet turns in another dazzling performance as a young man struggling with addiction; matched on screen by an equally impressive performance by Steve Carell, as a loving father who can’t help but risk everything to help his son.
This timely and deeply affecting tale is beautifully written for the screen by Australia’s Luke Davies (Lion, Candy), and marks an impressive English-language feature debut for Felix van Groeningen, the gifted Belgian director of foreign-language Oscar nominee The Broken Circle Breakdown.
Beautiful Boy is in cinemas from October 25, 2018.
