The Summer is now in its final days, we slowly are creeping into Autumn which means the Oscar contenders marketing is kicking-off. Studiocanal today has released the UK Trailer for Beautiful Boy starring Steve Carrell and Timothée Chalamet.
If there’s one thing that will tick the boxes of the Academy is emotion and the evidence of this trailer there’s plenty. Based on the memoirs from father and son David and Nic Sheff. It’s a film that looks like you’ll spend more time wiping your eyes than munching on your favourite Cinema snack.
Meth seems to be the villain in all this and the trailer really pushes the father ‘searching’ for his lost son. I’m not going to say I’m no expert on drug addiction with this based on a real-life situation. This looks like a perfect film to show similar families in the same predicament. What damage it does to the addict but also their family, so who are you?!

Based on the memoir “Beautiful Boy” by David Sheff and “Tweak” by his son, Nic Sheff, the film chronicles the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years.
Don’t expect this one will be finding itself in the new ‘popular’ category at the next Oscars. Potentially its one the critics will be challenging somewhere possibly Carrell and Chalamet are both former winners could we see Best Actor/Supporting Actor categories?
Beautiful Boy is set to be released in UK and Irish Cinemas from 18th January 2019. Co-starring Maura Tierney and Amy Ryan, and directed by Felix Van Groeningen.Powered by Sidelines
