Beautiful Boy

"The tape will definitely appeal to everyone who likes exciting dramas. The center of the film is the relationship between father and son and the change in this relationship, when it seems that nothing can be changed anymore, paternal love fights to the end." (M. Valiūnaitė)

Felix van Groeningen's new film, based on the best-selling memoir by father and son David and Nico Scheff, tells the story of one family's years-long struggle with addiction. The heart-wrenching yet inspiring experience reveals a repeating cycle of survival, relapse and healing. Timothée Chalamet, nominated for an Oscar for his role in Call Me By Your Name, returns with another impressive character. Together with Steve Carell, they embody an evocative and touching father-son relationship.
