Overview

Based on the best-selling true accounts of a father and son, Beautiful Boy stars Timothée Chalamet (Call My By Your Name, Lady Bird) as Nic Sheff, a young man struggling with a substance abuse problem and Steve Carrell (Vice, Foxcatcher, Curly Sue) as David Sheff, a dad in the delicate position of trying to help his son but also enforce tough love. A promising writer, Nic pushes his family away as his early experimentations with drugs begin to take hold of his life while David, a – by all counts pretty hip – Rolling Stone journalist, tries his best to understand Nic’s journey rather than just pushing him away. A moving, warmly shot portrait of a family in crisis directed by Felix Van Groeningen (The Broken Circle Breakdown).

★★★★ "An emotionally pummeling drama ... cements Timothée Chalamet as the real deal."
— Time Out
"Scrupulous and tenderly wounding — a drama that seizes and holds you."
— Variety

Why You Should See This Film

Carrell and Chalamet bring so much to these tender roles and together they share a sweet father-son chemistry, rare to see on screen. Adapted from ‘Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction’ by David Sheff and Nic Sheff’s ‘Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines’, the screen-play was co-written by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Luke Davies (Lion, Candy) whose former addiction lends an authentic voice to the ebbs and flows of the life of an addict. Oh! And a bit of trivia: the Sheff’s beautiful craftsman-style house was also featured in Big Little Lies.
