Beautiful Boy Trailer

"I thought we were close, I thought we were closer than most fathers and sons… Why?!" Amazon Studios has released the first official trailer for Beautiful Boy, an adaptation from director Felix van Groeningen. This looks like a very tender, intimate, heartbreaking but also somewhat uplifting film about a family and the challenges they have with a son addicted to methamphetamines. Beautiful Boy stars Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet as father and son David and Nic, dealing with their experiences of "survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years." The full cast includes Maura Tierney, Christian Convery, Oakley Bull, Kaitlyn Dever, Amy Ryan, Stefanie Scott, and Julian Works. This looks really wonderful, and like an emotional rollercoaster, but it has that tiny bit of hope that makes me smile. I love the way this trailer starts with such a strong scene, letting it play out. This is a must watch.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Felix van Groeningen's Beautiful Boy, direct from YouTube:

Beautiful Boy is directed by experienced Belgian filmmaker Felix van Groeningen, director of Steve + Sky, With Friends Like These, The Misfortunates, The Broken Circle Breakdown, and Belgica previously. The screenplay is written by Felix van Groeningen and Luke Davies, adapted from both David Sheff's memoir "Beautiful Boy: A Father's Journey Through His Son's Addiction" and also Nic Sheff's memoir "Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines". This just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, and will next play at the Zurich & San Sebastian Film Festivals. Amazon Studios will release van Groeningen's Beautiful Boy in select theaters starting October 12th this fall. First impression? Who wants to see this?

This song is by Mogwai and they're even better than the already awesome EITS.

Hence why I still haven't seen Fathers & Daughters.

Well, relationships between parents and child are the source of constant worry and things can go awry, right? Although, this trailer is a bit of exaggerating with the emotional tone ...

Looks well-acted and with a heavy subject matter...but...I gotta be in the mood for this kind of thing. And the mood doesn't come often... Glad Steve Carrell is getting work though.
