Date: Saturday, October 6, 2018
Mill Valley Film Festival invites you to their special screening of A Beautiful Boy, with special guests actor Timothee Chalamet (Nic), actress Amy Ryan (Nic's maternal figure), and director Felix Van Groeningen. About A Beautiful Boy: Culling from the bestselling memoirs of both father and son David and Nic Sheff, Felix van Groeningen’s English-language debut is a kaleidoscopic and moving portrait of an American family coping with addiction. Frequent Rolling Stone contributor David (Steve Carell) sees his teenage son Nic’s (an unforgettable Timothée Chalamet) marijuana use as harmless experimentation until he begins to spiral out of control on heroin and crystal meth. What follows is an alternately inspiring and unflinching look at a family as it begins the long cycle of rehab and relapse, hope and dread. Filmed in San Francisco and Marin County, Beautiful Boy features a diverse soundtrack which includes John Lennon, Nirvana, and Sigur Rós, and outstanding supporting performances from Maura Tierney and Amy Ryan as Nic’s maternal figures.
