    I thought this movie was wonderful, it had such a graceful and personal approach to the movie and the actors captivated these rolls with such perfection. Timothee Chalamet's performance as Nicholas was portrayed with such soul and passion. Absolute perfection and a must watch.

    The acting was good and I am a fan of both actors but the movie missed the mark. It kind of ran in circles on a hamster wheel. It was like the same 20 minutes redone but he was older

    It has great visuals, but the story is quite guessable and low-key boring.

    Beautiful Boy shows potential through so many ways. The performances are great and the visuals are nice but the generic plot is something everybody has seen before. The characters are never interesting and I found myself trying to connect with these characters, but I just couldn't. The only way that Beautiful Boy holds up is through Carell and Chalamet.

A tired, familiar, and at times redundant plot executed nicely by a duo of unquestionably talented actors in Steve Carell and Timothรฉe Chalamet. Like a fine wine, Salt-and-Pepper Steve has only gotten more enjoyable with age throughout his transition from goofy comedic roles into movies with real heart and substance. However, the film is lifted to watchability with a dynamic, challenging, turbulent performance by Timothee Chalamet, whose career is skyrocketing with the best of them at the moment. Overall, a tough watch, but one that is absolutely worth a free viewing on Amazon Prime.

    Powerful film about addiction and family with incredible performances and a strong heartfelt story. Not an easy watch but an important one.

    A really good film. Sometimes a bit dry and Chalamet could have given us more (if allowed to).

    Beautiful Boy is an emotional roller coaster that I believe everyone should see before making broad assumptions on addiction. I was so committed to everyone, Nic's relapses physically hurt and I couldn't stop thinking about his younger sibling and parents.
