Starring Academy Award® nominees Steve Carell (Foxcatcher, The Big Short) and Timothée Chalamet (Call Me by Your Name), Beautiful Boy is a deeply moving portrait of a family’s unwavering love and commitment to each other in the face of their son’s addiction and his attempts at recovery. As Nic repeatedly relapses, the Sheffs are faced with the harsh reality that addiction is a disease that does not discriminate and can hit any family at any time.
From the producers of Moonlight and 12 Years a Slave, and adapted from David and Nic Sheff’s best-selling memoirs by BAFTA Award winner Luke Davies (Lion), Beautiful Boy is a searingly honest account of the ways addiction can destroy lives and the power of love to rebuild them.
