Beautiful Boy

I watched “Beautiful Boy” on Amazon Prime. It was only in theaters a short time. The film tells the story of a father and son and their journey through drug addiction and how it affects their family. Steve Carell plays the father and this is the best acting job he has done. He is loving, supportive, torn, frustrated, and fed up. Carell is real. The son is played by Timothee Chalamet and he too is real. The viewer feels the same way that the father does. You feel like you have been through a ringer. It’s too bad that this film was overlooked by the Oscars. Worth seeing.
