Honey Boy

“The genesis of this intimate drama, written by Shia LaBeouf and directed by Alma Har’el, is built into the plot: as part of his therapy in court-mandated rehab, a well-known actor named Otis (Lucas Hedges) writes a script about his past, which is shown in flashbacks.

“The story is centered on the twelve-year-old Otis (Noah Jupe), a rising child star who is chaperoned in Hollywood by his father, James (LaBeouf). They live in a grubby motel where James, a former rodeo clown, a recovering alcoholic, an ex-convict, and a sex offender, conveys to Otis his own severe discipline and comedic craft, along with physical and emotional violence, egocentric fury, and a well of self-pity.

“The public misconduct that landed Otis in rehab is linked to his impacted rage—as is his artistry. LaBeouf plays James with a psychodramatic intensity that’s nonetheless methodical. The strongest moments are when Otis is caught off guard: on a phone call with his mother (who remains unseen), and in scenes from movie sets where his acting and his life converge.” - The New Yorker
