A hard, but terrific watch - Beautiful Boy review by AB

Spoiler Alert
09/07/2019

This is a hard watch, but the terrific performances of the lead actors lifts the film to very good. The scenario of drug addicted child getting clean then relapsing time after time must be horribly familiar to many parents. I found myself asking 'how would I have handled this?' if it were my child. Would I have handled it like Steve Carell in the film, even though I think his anger and accusations were unhelpful? Timothee Chalamet is excellent as the drug addicted son. Overall, a good watch, especially perhaps for older teens.

Hmm ?? - Beautiful Boy review by MH

Spoiler Alert
22/08/2019

The trailer looked great and I nearly went to watch at cinema but couldn’t go they’d taken it off so I was glad to receive this Blu-ray, but sadly I was disappointed I turned it off after 18 minutes I just could not get into it.

Compelling - Beautiful Boy review by LD

Spoiler Alert
25/08/2019

Set against a backdrop of a serene woodland home and chaotic/slightly nostalgic city scenes, this movie literally throws you into addiction time and time again. Near full track musical scoring gives you the sense of time passing linking the main characters (father and son). 

Hope is repeatedly pulled from underneath you leavIng you craving more (echoing addiction?) and different family view points drain your sense of empathy, sympathy and an un nerving familiarity. 

Contrasting sun lit glory days and dark drug filled nights intertwine the juxtaposed timeline.

This movie throws your emotions around with your heart and brain feeling bashed and bruised, much like the central characters.

Watch it with someone, you’ll need a hug when the credits roll as the “beautiful boy” recites his favourite poem.
