Great performance from Shia LaBeouf and you can feel his pain from his real life experiences. Noah Jupe was really good too. I wish I liked it more but I just didn't connect that well with the story.

A cathartic writing experience for Shia, I'm sure. It's a good film, and really quite insightful

I don't know how much of this is based on fact on Shia's life but to go through all that in childhood and still live with It today and have a great acting career at the same time is amazing and heartwarming. I loved the performance from all cast specially Shia's role and I bet it was hard playing that role and writing it.

This is a different kind of movie in that it is a portrayal of Shia LeBeouf's relationship with his father and his life as a child actor. It isn't always an easy watch. I don't know if it would have worked quite as well if LeBeof hadn't been playing the role of his father. I had no idea that he could act on that level. I can't imagine the emotional roller coaster that he must have been on while making it. The movie is very well done. follow me at https://IHATEBadMovies.com or facebook IHATEBadMovies

Sadly, I wasn't able to connect with this as much as I am able to connect with other films, which I'd put down to the screenplay, so I didn't enjoy it as much as I could have. I can't say it's one I'd go out of my way to watch. It was a narrative film, so it was slow and not More

It's pretty funny how i went into this film without knowing anything about it, right after watching Pain & Glory by Pedro Almodovar just the day before and they ended up following pretty much the same structure: two timelines, in the present one you see the main character (loosely based on t More

Stunning. Hedges is excellent. And if we are to believe half of it, I guess we know why Shia is the way he is.

Both Shia LeBeouf and first-time director Alma Har'el have created a truly moving piece of cinema that is an experience everyone needs to have. I can't wait to see what they do next... let the Shiaissance begin!
