Based on the autobiographical books by journalist Bill Sheff (Steve Carell) and his son Nic Sheff (Timothée Chalamet), Beautiful Boy chronicles a teenage Nic's addiction to drugs, and his family's heartbreaking attempts to guide him through recovery. The film also stars Maura Tierney as Bill's wife, and Amy Ryan as his ex-wife.
That such absolute devastation can occur in the blink of an eye is too much to fathom. A roll of the dice, an act of madness that changes life forever and ever. This is Beautiful Boy.
