Beautiful Boy trailer: Steve Carell watches son Timothée Chalamet struggle with addiction
The American trailer for Beautiful Boy has been online for a while now but the UK version was released today ahead of it hitting cinemas early next year. There is no doubt it is being aimed at the Oscars given the subject matter, although it isn't likely to land up in wonderful new Favourite Film category. Ahem. If you haven't seen the trailer for Beautiful Boy, you can check it out above now.
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.
Felix Van Groeningen (The Broken Circle Breakdown) is directing with Maura Tierney and Amy Runand appearing alongside Carell and Chalamet.
Beautiful Boy arrives in UK cinemas on January 18th 2019.
