TIFF REVIEW: FILM #35 "Beautiful Boy"

IN MY OPINION - 6.5/10

Again sheen knocks it out of the park with an amazing performance.
It was nice to see a story like this, void of violence-helping show how the aftermath of violence is almost as bad as the violent act itself.
As a directorial debut this is a powerful intimate Story of loss and denial. The constant stredicam is a character all it's own as the grieving parents wander through the unsteady ground of masive guilt at the same time, making me feel like I was a distant observer bought into the quiet moments. It worked very well.
