Beautiful Boy Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Beautiful Boy is an unconventional love story that explores the journey of a married couple on the verge of separation, who must live with unimaginable heartbreak, and find healing through the darkest days of their lives.

Bill (Michael Sheen) and Kate (Maria Bello) hopelessly try to find some hint of an explanation after finding out that their only son committed a mass shooting at his university before taking his own life. They struggle numbly through the funeral, the media onslaught, and the awkward pity from relatives and friends. Their already strained marriage is tested as they realize all they have left with each other is their shared grief and confusion--and the unfortunate legacy of their son. This life-altering event forces Bill and Kate to face their feelings of guilt, rage, blame, self-discovery --and ultimately hope--so that they can finally see each other and their chance for happiness again with clear eyes.

Review: Beautiful Boy is the kind of film that makes you really think.  This heavy drama features a husband and wife..mother and father..trying to pick up the pieces of their lives after their son commits a school shooting!  The film examines the effects on their marriage, their lives and their well-being.  The even pulls them apart at the seams and we have to watch as they try to get by and make life work for themselves again.  A fair warning, this one is heavy, but the acting is great and the film is overall an amazing and original watch.

Interest Range: Drama
