Felix Van Groenigen‘s Beautiful Boy (Amazon, 10.12), a drama about a dad (Steve Carell) grappling with a meth-addicted son (Timothee Chalamet), probably won’t screen at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. A person who attended a late January research screening says that Chalamet “acts circles” around Carell (“He’s got so much raw talent…we see him go from a well-adjusted kid through addiction to rehab and then relapse…he’s given a lot to do and he really makes it seem easy”) but that’s all I’ll share. I’ll only say that it doesn’t seem likely to screen a few weeks hence on the Cote d’Azur. The costars are Maura Tierney, Amy Ryan, Timothy Hutton and Kaitlyn Dever.
