Director: Felix Van Groeningen
Cast: Steve Carell, Timothee Chalamet, Maura Tierney, Amy Ryan, and Christian Convery.
What the critics are saying:
"A test of an actor is playing someone who's split in so many ways that he moves forward while looking backwards and vice versa, and Chalamet is already a master." - David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"When the family dynamics are front and center, "Beautiful Boy" resonates, as it reflects the ugliness of addiction and the long tail it wags." - Adam Graham, Detroit News
"The leads are superb, buoyed by Amy Ryan as Nic's mom, Maura Tierney as his stepmother, and LisaGay Hamilton in a moving cameo." - Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
