One of the best films we saw at BFI London Film Festival was most definitely Beautiful Boy which stars “it” boy Timothee Chalamet and Steve Carell.

Amazon Studios are totally going for the Oscar nominations again with Beautiful Boy

In this true story about the family perils surrounding drug addiction, Beautiful Boy is a heartfelt and emotional triumph which is bound to leave you wiping up your tears after the movie. Initially we thought this movie might be a glossy Hollywood take on how drugs affect family members, but what we have here is actually a gritty, true-to-life tale that explores what it’s like for drugs to overtake even the most brightest of creative minds.

In this episode of Boys On Film, Phil and Raj explore why Beautiful Boy is such an important film and ask why Timothee Chalamet is a thespian force to be reckoned with.

New episodes of Boys on Film are released every Monday and Friday, so make sure to subscribe to Phil Marriott’s YouTube channel for updates.
