Honey Boy (15)
Shia Labeouf has written a fictionalised autobiography in which he plays his own father. A rising child actor, ‘Otis’ bears the frustrated rage of a parent who cruelly envies the early success that pays for both of their lives. Otis goes through his own crisis of inflated fame and bad behaviour, but the reflective and cathartic story he creates in rehab emerges as a bravely insightful drama.
USA 2019 – Directed by Alma Har’el with Shia LaBeouf, Lucas Hedges, Noah Jupe – 95 min
For those who have negative thoughts toward LaBeouf, especially over the last few years… This movie showcases one of the most incredible performances of his career and it’s truly heartbreaking to see behind the curtains – TIME OUT
