Beautiful Boy 2018 USA 2h 1min

Based on the best-selling pair of memoirs from father and son David and Nic Sheff, Beautiful Boy chronicles the heart breaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years. Starring Steve Carell, Timothée Chalamet, Maura Tierney and Amy Ryan.

Teenager Nicolas Sheff seems to have it all -- good grades, editor of the school newspaper, actor, artist and athlete. When Nic's addiction to meth threatens to destroy him, his desperate father does whatever he can to save his son and his family

Kevin Maher Times

Beautiful Boy is that rare cinematic artifact, a film that purports to be about one thing (in this case, addiction), but when you scrape away the surface dazzle, is really about everything.

Robbie Collin Daily Telegraph

It is a film of rare emotional complexity and punch - not just wincingly sharp on the business of addiction in particular, but also a heart-piercing ode to fatherhood at large.
