SWIFF 2018: BEAUTIFUL BOY

SWIFF PRESENTS SWIFF 2018: BEAUTIFUL BOY

Based on the bestselling pair of memoirs by father and son David and Nic Sheff, Felix van Groeningen's film chronicles the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years.  He is matched every step of the way in this moving drama by Steve Carell, who continues to build on his comic achievements with powerhouse dramatic turns in Foxcatcher, The Big Short, and most definitely here. 

David (Steve Carell) can hardly believe it: no longer does he recognize his own son. Although he and his wife, Vicki, believe that they did everything right, their eldest child has become addicted to meth. Not even adult yet, Nic is already drifting from one high to the next spreading lies and deceit, refusing all offers of help from his parents. Oscillating between hope and powerlessness, David decides to help his son with all possible means to overcome his addiction. He just cannot and will not give up on the happy, beautiful boy he once knew. The latest work by director Felix van Groeningen traces the painful experiences of young Nic as sensitively as he portrays the untiring love of his father. Starring alongside Steve Carell, and fresh from his breakout role in Call Me By Your Name, Academy Award nominee Timothée Chalamet turns in another dazzling performance in Beautiful Boy. Playing a young man raging and suffering through drug addiction, he confirms his status as one of the very best actors of his generation.
