The trailer for Honey Boy, the semi-autobiographical movie written by Shia LaBeouf (Transformers) and directed by Alma Har’el (LoveTrue) that focuses on the problematic relationship between a boy and his father, has been released.
The movie follows Otis (played by Noah Jupe and later Lucas Hedges) going through the different stages of his acting career, including his eventual fall into addiction, rehab and recovery. LaBeouf plays James, Otis’ father – an ex-rodeo clown and alcoholic felon.
