Beau­ti­ful Boy

Time Out Abu Dhabi - - FILM -

TIMOTHÉE CHA­LA­MET IS do­ing ma­jor things in his new movie Beau­ti­ful Boy – things that no other ac­tor of his gen­er­a­tion is at­tempt­ing. You have to go back to Mar­lon Brando to see these kind of heart­break­ing frowns, the an­gelic face turned up­ward, wrestling with frus­tra­tion.

The movie is unáinch­ing where it needs to be, keenly at­tuned to cycli­cal na­ture and its deeper blows to pride, trust and iden­tity. It some­times feels stren­u­ous but it’s hardly a Áaw.

Par­ents will feel heard by this movie in a way that few other Àlms have tried. Ev­ery­one else should go for Cha­la­met, who’s a rocket tak­ing off. Joshua Rothkopf

RE­LEASE DATE WHAT IS IT... A stun­ning and heart-break­ing drama WHY GO... For an­other bril­liant per­for­mance from Timothée Cha­la­met DI­REC­TOR Felix van Groenin­gen Nov 29 (TBA)
