Honey Boy (15)
Shia LaBeouf gives an astonishing performance as a version of his own father in his original autobiographical screenplay, directed by award-winning filmmaker Alma Har’el. Otis Lori, a young actor making a living in action films, is struggling with alcoholism and a habit for self-destructive behaviour. When an accident lands him in rehab, he begins to examine what led him there: in particular his childhood self, living out of motels and trying desperately to please his emotionally unstable, by turns abusive and loving father. Potent and darkly beautiful, it is bolstered by searchingly honest and non-judgemental writing from LaBeouf.
