Honey Boy

HONEY BOY.jpg

(USA, 93 min)

Writer: Shia LaBeouf
Director: Alma Har’el
Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Lucas Hedges, Noah Jupe, FKA Twigs

From a screenplay by Shia LaBeouf, based on his own experiences, award-winning
filmmaker Alma Har’el (Bombay Beach, LoveTrue) brings to life a young actor’s
stormy childhood and early adult years as he struggles to reconcile with his
father and deal with his mental health. Fictionalizing his ascent to stardom, and
subsequent crash-landing into rehab and recovery, Har’el casts Noah Jupe (A
Quiet Place) and Lucas Hedges (Boy Erased, Manchester by the Sea) as Otis Lort,
navigating different stages in a frenetic career. LaBeouf takes on the therapeutic
challenge of playing a version of his own father, an ex-rodeo clown and a felon.
Dancer-singer FKA twigs makes her feature-film debut, playing neighbor and
kindred spirit to the younger Otis in their garden-court motel home. Har’el’s feature
narrative debut is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between filmmaker and subject,
exploring art as medicine and imagination as hope through the life and times of a
talented, traumatized performer who dares to go in search of himself.
