Beautiful Boy is a new film from Amazon starring Steve Carell, based on the best-selling pair of memoirs from father and son David and Nic Sheff (Carell and Timothée Chalamet, the latter seen most recently in Call Me By Your Name), and chronicles the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years.
Alas, I almost fell asleep watching the trailer.
Beautiful Boy is released in the UK on January 18th 2019, so just a week after Carell’s other Oscar hopeful, Welcome To Marwen.
Director: Felix van Groeningen
Also stars: Maura Tierney, Christian Convery, Oakley Bull, Kaitlyn Dever, Amy Ryan
