Dir: Alma Har’el
Starring: Shia LaBeouf, Lucas Hedges, FKA Twigs
Shia LaBeouf (The Peanut Butter Falcon) wrote the script for Honey Boy while he was undergoing rehab treatment. As much an exercise in psychological understanding as it is a creative spirit finding a positive outlet, this acclaimed film charts the actor’s stormy upbringing and explores his struggles to reconcile with his father. Fictionalising his childhood ascent to stardom, and subsequent crash-landing into alcohol and drug abuse, arrests and eventually rehab, this delicate and powerful self-reflective drama stars Academy Award-nominee Lucas Hedges (Manchester by the Sea) and a debut role for groundbreaking artist FKA Twigs.
