Beautiful Boy 2018
R | 2h | Biography, Drama | 7 September 2018 (Canada)
Based on the best-selling pair of memoirs from father and son David and Nic Sheff, Beautiful Boy chronicles the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years.
Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated R for drug content throughout, language, and brief sexual material
A wonderful movie of the damage addiction causes in our lives and how insidious it can be. The cast does a wonderful job in portraying the different aspects with the exception of keeping it a little too clean in terms of the thefts and betrayals.
Very inspirational in the portrayal of the family not quitting on Nic while realizing it’s on Nic to make the decision to stay in recovery.
All too real.
All respect to the Sheff family. Everything!!
