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.

Overlong - Beautiful Boy review by IG

Spoiler Alert
24/05/2019

The storyline is not an uncommon one, obviously this was unlikely to be amusing and entertaining, for us there is a limit to how much self-indulgent pity we can enjoy, this film exceeded that, the final chapter should have come around an hour sooner.

On the plus side the acting is first class, small children included, the "Beautiful Boy" gives a stellar performance we hated him in no time.

Carell and Chalamet are outstanding - Beautiful Boy review by TB

Spoiler Alert
08/06/2019

Both Steve Carell and Timothee Chalamet produce sensational performances in this deeply traumatic battle between a heavily drug addicted son and his desperate father.

I agree with other reviewers in that the film is a little dragged out but in a way this emphasis the concern and endless worrying that the parents were going through, which at times must have felt like every minute was an hour.

The fact this is based on a true story makes the film even more impactful and brings home the reality that sadly there are many families and people going through this same and awful struggle.
