Beautiful Boy (15)


US biographical drama in which a father helps his troubled son overcome his addiction to methamphetamines.

The critical consensus

A based-on-fact family drama whose truths may hit too hard for some, but are worth suffering if only to witness Timothée Chalamet’s performance.

****(*)Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 14/01/2019

Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet are both outstanding in this profoundly moving story of a young man dealing with addiction.

****(*)Caitlin Quinlan, The Skinny, 15/01/2019

Devastating, dramatic, but most of all empathic.

****(*)Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 14/01/2019

Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet play a real-life father and son in this insufferable, memoirs-based drugs drama.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 16/01/2019

If the film ultimately becomes a little enamoured with the relentless grind of this process, Carell and Chalamet are good enough to see it through.
