Beautiful Boy is based on not just one, but two, best-selling memoirs – ‘Beautiful Boy’ by David Sheff and ‘Tweak’ by Nic Sheff.

Drawing on these two perspectives the film chronicles both Nic’s struggles with methamphetamine addiction over many years, and how his family copes with the continuous cycle of relapse and recovery.

Timothy Chalamet stars as Nic, with Steve Carell as his father David in this screen adaptation co-written by Luke Davies, who brought the equally heartbreaking and inspiring story of Saroo Brierley to the screen in 2016’s Lion.
