Cast. Timothée Chalamet, Steve Carrell, Maura Tierney, Amy Ryan.
Based on a true story, Beautiful Boy is adapted from two separate memoirs by father and son about their experience. It’s also acted with startling emotional power and painful vulnerability in performances that are already generating talk of awards. David is a successful journalist and proud father to teenage son Nic. A relaxed, affectionate and communicative dad, he isn’t alarmed when Nic begins experimenting with marijuana; but then his son’s initially casual interest in drugs expands into an urgent addiction to crystal meth. As Nic transforms from his father’s beloved beautiful boy into an unhappy and chaotic addict, their relationship is repeatedly challenged to its core. A powerful, soulful and intensely moving drama about addiction, its tragic consequences and reverberations through a family.
