Sunday 07 April 2019
3:30pm - 6pm
Film Unit Cinema in the Nelson Mandela Auditorium

Director: Felix van Groeningen Cast: Steve Carell, Timothée Chalamet Country: USA Language: English A heart-breaking yet ultimately powerful look at the struggles of addiction, Beautiful Boy is the real story of father and son David (Steve Carell) and Nic (Timothée Chalamet), and how their bond changes with Nic’s fluctuating state between addiction and sobriety. Based on the pair’s memoirs, the film delivers a superbly acted narrative filled with love, loss and desperation and a painful view into the repetitive cycle of drug-use, with Chalamet’s character relapsing and visiting rehab multiple times, even when you think he’s finally free.
