Is there anything you wouldn’t do for your child? What if that child is an addict? Is there anything you can do? This is the desperate question facing David Sheff (Steve Carell), whose son Nic (Timothée Chalamet) is hopelessly hooked on crystal meth. Based on their real-life memoirs, this is an extraordinary story of the importance and impotence of love. Audiences will be familiar with Chalamet’s talent from Call Me by Your Name; both he and Steve Carell give blistering performances. Directed by Felix Van Groeningen (The Broken Circle Breakdown), Beautiful Boy is an artful voyage into family tragedy, ‘scrupulous and tenderly wounding – a drama that seizes and holds you’ – Variety.
