BEAUTIFUL BOY (Theatrical Release USA 2018)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Beautiful Boy
—educational—works the serious side of Steve Carrell to good effect. The film provides an early look at the acting talents of Timothée Chalamet. This film works on the somber, serious side of storytelling and will likely ring very strong emotional response for anyone involved in this same struggle. Great work for Director Felix van Goeningen.
