Review

if there’s a labeoufaissance to be had – of something length – then this may be the start line. honey boy is a fluent, heartfelt, tightly based and nicely acted personal story starring shia labeouf, who reportedly drafted the script in rehab. the director is the israeli-american movie-maker alma har’el, and this tale of misplaced souls in trailer parks is a little just like the eventualities conjured in her 2011 documentary bombay beach.

the drama is based totally on labeouf’s own sad youth as a younger actor who got into problem with the unholy dependancy trinity: drink, capsules and movie star. lucas hedges plays a celebrity, right here renamed otis, who has simply sulkily established rehab as an alternative to jail after his brand new boozy bust-up with the law enforcement officials.

his modest shared room with every other patient reminds him of the scuzzy resort room he used to share as a infant actor with his divorced recovering alcoholic dad james, a former soldier and fairground entertainer with a violent temper who become his paid chaperone whilst otis changed into filming a youngsters’ television show nearby. also: the swimming remedy on the rehab centre reminds otis of the lodge pool wherein certainly one of james’s scariest outbursts happened. flashbacks interweave with the existing-day state of affairs.

the more youthful otis is performed with style and beauty by means of noah jupe, and the mythologised dad is played, possibly unavoidably, through labeouf, as a fast-speaking, temperamental, charming however unfavourable and unreliable man who nicknames his son “honey boy”, and is full of enraged jealousy at his son’s developing stardom.

this looks on paper like a self-aggrandising conceitedness assignment, however it's far very well directed and finished. as ever with this kind of film, there's a subsidiary pride in questioning how truth has been converted. may want to it's that labeouf’s dad became now not pretty as needy, charismatic and voluble as he's depicted right here, and that the screenwriter has projected a number of himself directly to his dad? (james isn't always diverse to the man or woman labeouf performed in andrea arnold’s american honey.)

additionally, younger otis has an severe however basically innocent moment inside the trailer park with a stunning older lady, performed by using the actor and musician fka twigs. was this primarily based on a situation that become less harmless and with a person older?

this movie may want to form part of an thrilling double invoice with carrie fisher’s postcards from the brink, about her very own recuperation and discern troubles.
