Steve Carell — actor great letters, able to play as a comical, so and dramatic role that he demonstrated in this role, worthy of displaying emotions of a loving father to son the addict.

Deep philosophical message inherent in the film about the adoption of serious illness — drug addiction, loved ones, deserve respect.

Addiction — General, a social problem, and remember remember that dependent people need our support, understanding and patience love will be able to resist it. 

The pain overwhelms the soul, when a parent, in spite of the son, feels powerless, and the viewer is overwhelmed with wisdom, when in sympathy with him. The film "Beautiful boy" as time about the acceptance of destiny and people with their mental disabilities.

Actor Timothy Salame and his natural charisma — diamond pristine beauty, give him God, a bright future, which is so not enough actors, James Dean and Pierre Blaise... Salame and really "beautiful boy" with the beginnings of a natural actor in the true sense of the word.

Director Felix van Groningen should be calm, because he creates truly beautiful and spiritual things, alas, despite that not can be massive, despite the strong hard work of the author.

The film "Beautiful boy" let's call it a quiet masterpiece.

I often read reviews to various films and constantly bump into solid spoilers and retelling of the paintings as what they had the authors of those reviews.

And I not understand the message, the meaning of this, so called" critics", do you think someone really want to go to website and to read your personal opinion, which consists of hundreds of spoilers, a dozen abstruse words, not have (with rare exceptions) sense and one idea which cease to pick up after reading 1/3.

I think the reader, especially one who is film was not looking, wants to read the opinion at least a little bit objective, imagine that is waiting for him at the viewer what emotions he can test whether to go to the film to spend your time and your money.

Steve Carell and Timothy Salame (which by the way is very similar to real nick Scheff) coped with his roles.

A quality shot and nice music.

Film biography tells the story of a family, which was faced with serious problems, which would seem to caught them out of nowhere, because the strongest punch, it you're not see do not expect. By all means they are trying to understand the cause of the incident and handle this disease, but not so just when it would seem everything you have behind, it turns out, everything is just beginning.

The film is an emotional, not for a wide range of audiences, makes us think not only those who faced with similar problem, but and ordinary people who once had problems of misunderstanding adolescence.

Something like "the Basketball Diaries", but this film has liked much more suggest to view.

"Beautiful boy" in the first time shows openly bobsays-journalistic form, it represents the novel, consisting of educational presentations, furnished they perspective of the causes and effects of drug addiction, developing the plot on the basis of the relationship of the father and of the son, retrospectively bringing them into a common way to start and to end cohabitation with foolishness, displaying it steps — stages chronological cutoff, assembled in history of children and teenagers with a history of, contamination, infection, its manifestations and side effects, tactfully lay on the medical table in pictures, computer slide show, crystallizing in the theatrical conversations of men with your child, doctors and educators that form the pattern of penetration of the troubles, dominance and conquest of the inner will, augmented statistical properties of moral decay and moral decline, with great diligence handed over Steve Carrel and Timothy Salama, creating a short emotional outbursts in monotonically the current activity remaining in captivity of generics in medical practice, not creating personalized communication with characters whose, even worse, the things not able to compress the throat, throw in a heat or cold, leaving indifferent to unrestrained frenzy boys and the vain efforts of the father to save his life, irritating, like a strict notation.
