Timothée Chalamet may be up for his second Oscar nomination. In the first full-length trailer for Amazon Studios' "Beautiful Boy," the young actor's portrayal of a real-life methamphetamine addict is turning the internet into a puddle of tears.
The film, which is based on the best-selling memoirs from father and son David and Nic Sheff, follows the "heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years." "Beautiful Boy" concentrates on the complicated relationship father David Sheff (played by Steve Carell) and son, Nic (Chalamet).
"There are moments that I look at him, this kid that I raised, who I thought I knew inside and out, and I wonder who he is." Carell's character says in the trailer. ("The Office" alum is also said to be a Oscar contender this year for the role.)
"I don't feel like I have a disease. This isn't like cancer, this is my choice I put myself here," Chalamet's Nic says at one point, as we see a scene of him crying in a car.
The trailer teases a heart-wrenching, yet inspiring film that will no doubt be a tearjerker. We see clips of Chalamet's character sobbing, defending his using, and laying on a bathroom floor. We also see Carell's character desperately trying to help his son.
