Beautiful Boy (2018) LoganLives'S REVIEW


Carell and Chalamet Shine in Darkness


A tear-jerky true story exploring the collateral damage of drug addiction. Chalamet captures the angsty wasted youth who embarks on a drug addled odyssey while Carell serves as the soft-spoken landing pad father who constantly picks up the broken pieces. Beautiful Boy gives Carell one of his most career defining roles - proving how even the most minor facial expressions can make us laugh - like we did when he was Michael Scott - and cry at the torture his character David Sheff is going through here.
