BEAUTIFUL BOY

SYNOPSIS

A married couple on the verge of separation are leveled by the news their 18-year-old son committed a mass shooting at his college, then took his own life.

JOY’ S REVIEW

Beautiful Boy is a really alarming, very well made movie that stars Michael Sheen, Maria Bello, Alan Tudyk, and Moon Bloodgood. And believe it or not, Meatloaf, who’s actually pretty good. The story is a really tragic one of a couple whose son is off at college and tragedy ensues, and I won’t tell you too much about it, although you’ll probably guess. I certainly did. But the strength of this movie is not only — it’s sort of torn from the headlines, but that it’s very well acted. And looks at what happens as the fall-out of a tragedy, how other people are effected by it. I gave this four stars.
