Honey Boy

What's it about?

The story of a child star attempting to mend his relationship with his law-breaking, alcohol-abusing father over the course of a decade, loosely based on Shia LaBeouf’s life.

Why do we love it?

Honey Boy is a deeply honest film that looks at family, relationships, fame, and the effect that can have on an individual. In an incredibly brave project, LaBeouf recounts his life in a semi-biographical film and plays the father figure that once gave his life so much pain.

Who's in it?

Shia LaBeouf - James Lort

Lucas Hedges - Otis Lort (22 years old)

Noah Jupe - Otis Lort (12 years old)

Who made it?

Alma Har'el - Director

Shia LaBeouf - Writer
