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.
