Honey Boy

Loading Events

From a screenplay by Shia LaBeouf, based on his own experiences, award-winning filmmaker Alma Har’el brings to life a young actor’s stormy childhood and early adult years as he struggles to reconcile with his father through cinema and dreams. Fictionalizing his childhood ascent to stardom, and subsequent adult crash-landing into rehab and recovery, Har’el casts Noah Jupe and Lucas Hedges as Otis Lort, navigating different stages in a frenetic career. LaBeouf takes on the daring and therapeutic challenge of playing a version of his own father, an ex-rodeo clown and a felon.

“Shia LaBeouf wrote the script, and based it on his own childhood. This means he is, in essence, playing his own father. The performance is so good, so in-the-trenches, it feels like it’s an act of channeling rather than mimicry or even imitation… …what keeps “Honey Boy” from being self-pitying is not just its intelligence and humor, but LaBeouf’s choice to play James.” …Full Review

“LaBeouf’s recreation is nothing short of miraculous. Har’el’s direction is assured and unpretentious.” …Full Review

“Directed by Alma Har’el from LaBeouf’s riveting Rorschach of a script, Honey Boy feels real and lived in even as it pinwheels around in different time frames… …the most powerful scenes in film take place with the younger Otis — Jupe’s performance is astounding — when humor, affection, and harsh reality fight to co-exist.” …Full Review
