Amazon Studios debuts posters for Honey Boy
Despite his rocky journey through Hollywood I maintain that Shia LeBeouf is one of the best actors out there. He brings that passion and dedication to every role whether it’s a big popcorn flick like the Transformers franchise, a war action film like Fury or an indie film like American Honey. His latest film, Honey Boy has him not only appearing, but stepping into the writers chair to bring a fictionalized version of his life to the big screen with filmmaker Alma Har’el in the director’s seat.
Honey Boy brings to life a young actor's stormy childhood and early adult years as he struggles to reconcile with his father and deal with his mental health. Fictionalizing his ascent to stardom, and subsequent crash-landing into rehab and recovery, Har'el casts Noah Jupe (A Quiet Place) and Lucas Hedges (Boy Erased, Manchester by the Sea) as Otis Lort, navigating different stages in a frenetic career. LaBeouf takes on the therapeutic challenge of playing a version of his own father, an ex-rodeo clown and a felon. Dancer-singer FKA twigs makes her feature-film debut, playing neighbor and kindred spirit to the younger Otis in their garden-court motel home. Har'el's feature narrative debut is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between filmmaker and subject, exploring art as medicine and imagination as hope through the life and times of a talented, traumatized performer who dares to go in search of himself.
While you will have to wait until November 8th to see the film in theaters you can check out the all-new posters as well as previously released red band trailer here now from Amazon Studios.
