Amazon Studios has released the first official trailer for director Alma Har’el’s Honey Boy, highlighting the tumultuous relationship between a child actor and his father. Starring Shia LaBeouf (Disturbia, American Honey) along with Oscar nominee Lucas Hedges (Manchester By the Sea, Boy Erased) and Noah Jupe (A Quiet Place), the film will have its theatrical release on November 8th.
The screenplay is written by LaBeouf and is based on his own experiences, award-winning filmmaker Alma Har’el brings to life a young actor’s stormy childhood and early adult years as he struggles to reconcile with his father through cinema and dreams. Fictionalizing his childhood’s ascent to stardom, and subsequent adult crash-landing into rehab and recovery, Har’el casts Noah Jupe and Lucas Hedges as Otis Lort, navigating different stages in a frenetic career.
