Beautiful Boy is a deeply moving portrait of a family’s unwavering love and commitment to each other in the face of their son’s addiction and his attempts at recovery. Based on two memoirs, one from acclaimed journalist David Sheff and one from his son, Nic Sheff. As Nic repeatedly relapses, the Sheffs are faced with the harsh reality that addiction is a disease that does not discriminate and can hit any family at any time. (c) Amazon Studios

Chalamet now leaves no doubt that he’s an actor of refined and profound gifts: His performance in Beautiful Boy helps elevate a boho-bourgeois melodrama to something that aspires to be more achingly real and human.

When the family dynamics are front and center, Beautiful Boy resonates, as it reflects the ugliness of addiction and the long tail it wags.

Chalamet’s charismatic, maddening Nic is spectacular, and the film’s stubbornly unresolved view of loving an addict — its perception of the experience as a grueling, endless walk beside someone – is brutal but feels honest.

Parents will feel heard by this movie in a way that few other films have tried. Everyone else should go for the kid, who’s a rocket taking off. You want to be able to say you were there when it happened.
