Shia LaBeouf is an objectively brilliant actor with an objectivley troubled past - and this film might just be the healing experience he needs.
Honey Boy, which was put on the Black List after he wrote it, is loosely based on Shia's childhood relationship with his dad, who struggled with alcoholism and heroin addiction while managing his career as a child actor. The best part? Shia is starring - as his father.
Lucas Hedges will play a young Shia himself, making for what will probably be an award-winning movie, all things considered. Shia has gotten a lot of shit over the years, but he's an incredible (and very sexy) performer.
