Honey Boy

In the narrative feature directional debut from Alma Har’el (Bombay Beach, LoveTrue) and from a screenplay penned by Shia LaBeouf comes HONEY BOY, a film based on the actor’s real life experiences growing up in an industry that’s apt to chew you up and spit you back out.

Otis is a fictionalised version of LaBeouf himself, a young actor growing up with a turbulent family life, making his way through mental health struggles and a subsequent landing into rehab. Noah Jupe (Wonder, A Quiet Place) plays young Otis, with Lucas Hedges (Boy Erased, Ben Is Back) taking over in his young adult years, and FKA Twigs also starring – and LaBeouf takes on a gruelling job as he plays his own father. He manages to tackle directing, starring and writing a story that isn’t just his own, rather one that takes in the nature of art as therapy in an industry often free from the constraints of care.
