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.

After he and his first wife separate, journalist David (Steve Carell) struggles to help their teenage son Nic (Timothee Chalamet), who goes from experimenting with drugs to becoming devastatingly addicted to methamphetamine.

“When the family dynamics are front and center, “Beautiful Boy” resonates, as it reflects the ugliness of addiction and the long tail it wags.” –Detroit News
