Fresh off his spectacular Oscar-nominated turn in the acclaimed gay-centric film, Call Me By Your Name, Timothée Chalamet stars with fellow Academy Award nominees Steve Carell and Amy Ryan in Beautiful Boy, due to hit theaters October 12.
The film is based on a pair of best-selling memoirs by father and son David and Nic Sheff.
The official logline reads, “Based on the best-selling pair of memoirs from father and son & David and Nic Sheff, Beautiful Boy chronicles the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years.”
The trailer begins with a fairly extended scene between father and son, an unusual move for an initial promo but puts the talent and chemistry of Chalamet and Carell front and center. Both are here, and both are bringing it.
From the Academy Award winning producers of 12 Years A Slave and Moonlight, the film also features Golden Globe winner Maura Tierney.
Considering the depth of talent involved with the film, Oscar prognosticators already have the movie on their radar.
