Steve Carell is David Sheff, a successful journalist and proud father. A relaxed, affectionate and communicative dad, he is not alarmed when teenage son Nic, played by Timothe Chalamet(Call Me By Your Name), begins experimenting with marijuana, less so when this leads to a consuming addiction to crystal meth. As Nic transforms fromhis fathers beautiful boy into an unhappy and chaotic addict, their relationship is challenged to its core. Adapted from two separate memoirs by David and Nic Sheff, the dual viewpoint enriches our sense of the films authenticity while Carell and Chalamet generate painful vulnerability and an entirely believable father-son chemistry.a triumph of performance and emotional nuance.Hanna Woodhead"Little White LiesDir: Felix Van GroeningenStarring: Timothe Chalamet, Steve Carell, Maura Tierney, Amy RyanUS, 2018Run Time 2 hours
