Amazon Studios has released a new trailer for filmmaker Felix Van Groeningen’s (The Broken Circle Breakdown) highly anticipated addiction drama 'Beautiful Boy'. Based on the best-selling pair of memoirs from father and son David and Nic Sheff, 'Beautiful Boy' chronicles the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years. 

Timothée Chalamet, fresh off an Oscar-nominated turn in last year’s Call Me by Your Name, plays meth addict Nic Sheff, while Steve Carell fills the role of Nic’s helpless father David.

Written by Oscar-nominated Lion screenwriter Luke Davies and van Groeningen, the film also stars Maura Tierney and Amy Ryan and will be released in theaters on October 12.
