I disagree with many of the comments on this page. Sure, the film is slow paced, but what did people expect? Car chases, the next Trainspotting? It's a very well made film, being at once an unsensationalistic look at how drugs can ruin a man's life (and that of his family), and the loving relationship between a father and his son. The film resonated with me on a personal level too, and brought back memories of the young people I knew who are no longer here thanks to the evil (and I mean that word in a very real sense) of drugs. Oh, and the performances were stellar. Watch it, and then make a special effort to love the people closest to you.

Whoooooo this is boring. Its technically well acted and put together, even an important look at addiction, but what a snore-fest

A devastating look at how addiction can not only ruin one person's life but also their family's too. The film can be really frustrating at times but that is what addiction is. Timothée Chalamet and Steve Carell both give fantastic performances.

Inspired by a father and son’s dual memoirs (Beatiful Boy and Tweak, respectively), Felix Van Groeningen’s heartfelt adaptation portrays the relationship between David (Steve Carell) and Nic Sheff (Timothée Chalamet), as both struggle through the latter’s drug addiction.
