Chalamet now leaves no doubt that he's an actor of refined and profound gifts: His performance in "Beautiful Boy" helps elevate a boho-bourgeois melodrama to something that aspires to be more achingly real and human.

Chalamet's terrific throughout, accessing and deploying every kind of emotion in unpredictable combinations.

Van Groeningen unflinchingly depicts the struggles and hopes of a family affected by drug addiction in a powerfully honest movie with gut-wrenching acting.

October 16, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

To its credit, Beautiful Boy doesn't reassure its audience with the false comfort of easy answers. But it still feels, ultimately, like an earnest and relatively minor wrinkle on a stark, emotional, all-too-familiar story.

Parents will feel heard by this movie in a way that few other films have tried. Everyone else should go for the kid, who's a rocket taking off. You want to be able to say you were there when it happened.

Van Groeningen methodically demonstrates how that can count for little in the face of crystal meth, but that's the only takeaway from Beautiful Boy that felt fresh.
