"Timothée Chalamet shines... another Oscar-worthy performance from the Call Me by Your Name star" – Guardian
Based on the best-selling memoirs from father and son David and Nic Sheff, Beautiful Boy chronicles the heart-breaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years.
David (Carrell) and Nic (Chalamet) have an almost idyllic relationship until Nic slides into a downward spiral of substance abuse. Eventually becoming addicted to crystal meth and estranged from his family, Nic only returns to beg for help, money or rehab.
Desperate to get through to Nic, David begins to realise that only by letting go, the hardest thing for any parent to do, will he be able to save his son before the drugs consume him.
