Beautiful Boy (out Oct 25) is based on a two memoirs and focuses on journalist David Sheff (Steve Carell) and his efforts to help his drug-addicted son (Timothée Chalamet). There are too many flashbacks and the story is fragmented (big gaps between key events) but the two lead performances make it worth the price of admission. Grade: B-.
