Based on twin memoirs by father and son, "Beautiful Boy" is a grim fact-based account about the horrors of drug addiction, conveying the shame of the addict and, perhaps most forcefully, the guilt and frustration of his father. Anchored by Steve Carell and Timothee Chalamet, the story can't entirely escape an old-fashioned TV movie feel -- which isn't bad, necessarily, but makes this one of those films that isn't worth rushing out to see.
