In his upcoming movie, Call Me by Your Name’s Timothée Chalamet is anything but peachy.
Following its first full trailer in June, Amazon Studios has released a second trailer for Beautiful Boy, a biographical drama about one family’s struggle to survive substance abuse.
The film is based on two memoirs, David Sheff’s Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction and Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines by his son, Nic Sheff.
Chalamet, 22, stars as Nic, an honor student and athlete whose suburban life is derailed by meth addiction. Steve Carell plays David, Nic’s father.
“When I tried it, I felt better than I ever had, so I just kept on doing it,” Nic explains of his drug use.
“It’s hard as hell to get sober,” he later says. “But I love my family. I want them to be proud of me.”
Adapted and directed by Felix Van Groeningen, Beautiful Boy also stars Maura Tierney, Amy Ryan, and Timothy Hutton.
Beautiful Boy is in theaters October 12.
