William Bibbiani Reviews 'Beautiful Boy'

Oscar nominees Timotheé Chalamet ("Call Me By Your Name") and Steve Carell ("Foxcatcher") co-star in "Beautiful Boy," an adaptation of memoirs by father and son David Sheff and Nic Sheff. It's the story of a writer whose son becomes a drug addict, and the struggles they go through to reconnect with each other, and cope with a life of debilitating drug addiction. Felix Van Groeningen ("The Broken Circle Breakdown") directs, and Maura Tierney ("The Affair") and Amy Ryan ("Birdman") co-star.

In his review at IGN, William Bibbiani praises all of the actors in "Beautiful Boy," especially Chalamet, who "is operating on another level, channeling James Dean levels of angst." Unfortunately, Bibbiani also says the film as a whole is "a simplistic cautionary tale" and "blunt to a fault."
