Beautiful Boy 123 Full Movie Plot & Release Dates.
The trauma of an addiction which rages through a comfortable middle-class white family is painfully remembered in Beautiful Boy, with Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet playing a loving father and his teenage son, who both wrote memoirs which are adapted here by director Felix van Groeningen (with co-writer Luke Davies). Strong, committed performances and the upsetting ring of reality anchor a highly-personal film which cycles through addiction, relapse and rehab in an episodic way, each high as inevitable as the low which follows.
The film’s length, coupled with the true-to-life repetition and raw pain so convincingly portrayed onscreen, may prove a deterrent to wider audiences. In an America ravaged by meth addiction, however, Beautiful Boy could hit home for many families, wherever they choose to view it. Carell provides strong ballast in a thankless – in real life and on screen – role as a father bewildered by the incremental loss of his beloved son to addiction. Chalamet is elusively liquid in the role of a child who sabotages his life without ever really being able to express why.
Van Groeningen, the Belgian director of 2012’s Oscar nominated The Broken Circle Breakdown, guides this film with a rather untypically-solemn hand. The tone is resolute: any flashback to happier times serves only as a contrast to what will follow. The film kicks off with a bald statement of the family’s problems before tracking back in a series of flashbacks. An expensive soundtrack derived from the family’s musical preferences (from Nirvana to Neil Young, and John Lennon’s title track) feels like a grim punctuation, never more on-the-nose as when Perry Como starts singing ‘Sunrise, Sunset’ as young Nic Sheff (Chalamet) hits the party trail again. The audience feels trapped in the same drugs cycle as his family.
