BEAUTIFUL BOY (2018): The Thing I Liked…

At the centre of Beautiful Boy is a father’s struggle as he tries to help his drug addicted son turn his life around. Starring Steve Carell, Timothée Chalamet and Maura Tierney, this one is a story as heartbreaking and inspiring as everyone said.

I wanted to see director Felix Van Groeningen’s Beautiful Boy because of my curiosity about the experience of a parent whose child is battling addiction. Another motivation was a desire to witness Carell deliver yet another notable dramatic performance, which he does, of course. Then there’s Chalamet. It really was about time that I understood the reason behind all the hype concerning Chalamet’s acting skills. I understand the hype and I have zero objections.

Besides being fifteen to twenty minutes longer than is preferable, Beautiful Boy is well told and moving story. If I had to pick a favourite moment, I enjoyed the moment at the airport that conveyed the strong bond between father and son. The scene that moved me most however is the one with the vehicular pursuit near the family home. It’s a great moment that really brought to the fore the considerable suffering experienced by family members outside of the father / son relationship, one family member in particular.

Watch Beautiful Boy for the insight and a reminder of what a truly huge undertaking parenthood truly is. Praises be to all the great parents, who remain great especially when their children mess up.

Beautiful Boy is the heartbreaking and inspiring story of survival and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years.

Based on two separate memoirs by David Sheff and his son Nic Sheff, Beautiful Boy is directed by Felix Van Groeningen and stars  Steve Carell, Timothée Chalamet, Maura Tierney…

This looks like a good in-depth look at addiction, how it deeply affects those involved. I’m excited to seeing what I’ll be shown. The dialogue between father and son should be interesting, especially considering how close they used to be.

Beautiful Boy Release Dates: October 12th, 2018 (US); January 18th, 2019 (UK)…
