In a traditional father/son relationship, the father cares for the son until he grows up and goes on to raise a family of his own. For the Sheriff’s this was not the case.
Based on the memoir’s that Father David wrote (Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction) as well as the one his son Nix wrote (Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines), ‘Beautiful Boy’ follows the survival and recovery relationship between father and son. David (Steve Carell) is a father who cares about his son and is frustrated with his son Nic’s (Timothée Chalamet) choices. Nic, on the other hand, is frustrated that his father still tries to choose Nic’s life.
The film looks like an amazing recollection of the story of recovery and how it affects everyone involved.
‘Beautiful Boy’ releases October 12, 2018.
