Get ready to cry after watching this. The last time this happened for me at least was while watching Manchester by the Sea which was also a series of incredible performances and lots of sadness. This looks to follow the same path but whether or not this movie finds the same success remains to be seen. Considering the talent involved, this seems more likely than not. Based on a pair of memoirs by David Sheff and his son, Nic Sheff, this movie chronicles the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years. Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet as David and Nic Sheff respectively are both incredible here in what looks to be yet another super sad story that is getting plenty of awards buzz. It would definitely be nice to see Chalamet get his Oscar after missing out for Call Me By Your Name last year. Beautiful Boy will be released on October 12th, 2018.
