Director: Felix van Groeningen
Cast: Steve Carell, Timothée Chalamet, Maura Tierney
Based on the bestselling memoirs, Steve Carrell and Timothée Chalamet star in this raw look at a father-son relationship pushed to the edge by addiction. Felix van Groeningen (The Broken Circle Breakdown) directs this emotionally powerful story of a child living a secret life with candour and empathy for both parent and child.
After his breakout role in Call Me By Your Name, this is another stunning showcase for Timothy Chalamet’s versatility, but Steve Carrell also brings a searching vulnerability undreamt of in his comedic roles. An unsentimental tearjerker that will resonate with any parent.
“Has a lyricism, raw emotion and a sense of mystery that you simply won’t find in any other movie about drug abuse recovery plans.” ★★★★ – The Independent
“An impressively intimate drama.” ★★★★ – Empire Online
“Timothée Chalamet shines in grim addiction drama” ★★★ – The Guardian
