The film is based on the best-selling pair of memoirs from father and son David and Nic Sheff. They went through hell coping with drug addiction over many years. Beautiful Boy is a heartbreaking and inspiring story of survival and recovery, focusing on the loving relationship between father and son.
The title evokes the song of John Lennon, written to his son, kind of a lullaby which in this case portrays how dependent David and Nick are of each other during the recovery. The film shows us various levels of addiction jumping to and fro in time searching for answers, which is not easy as the protagonist is surrounded by a loving family. Director Felix Van Groeningen and scriptwriter Luke Davies (also an ex-addict) present us an intelligent and relatable plot, and the two brilliant actors in the leading role (Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet) make this film a memorable cinema experience.
