The film is based on author David Sheff’s memoir, Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction.

The trailer shows the two Oscar-nominated actors having an intense argument in a café.

Beautiful Boy is the story of a teenager’s methamphetamine addiction through the eyes of his father. A sentence in the memoir’s blurb reads: “Before meth, Sheff’s son Nic was a varsity athlete, honor student, and award-winning journalist.

“After meth, he was a trembling wreck who stole money from his eight-year-old brother and lived on the streets.”
