Notes: 
Storyline Heading
From a screenplay by Shia LaBeouf, based on his own experiences, award-winning filmmaker Alma Har'el brings to life a young actor's stormy childhood and early adult years as he struggles to reconcile with his father through cinema and dreams.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - Despite being written and co-starring Shia LaBeouf and based on his real life experiences as a child actor, this dark drama is distinctly not for kids. LaBeouf has a showy supporting role here with the true lead being young Noah Jupe. Lucas Hedges fans may be disappointed by his more limited screen time. Constant language, alcohol drinking, sensuality, and cigarette smoking--including by a child--make the film really not for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good The performance is so good, so in-the-trenches, it feels like it's an act of channeling rather than mimicry or even imitation. "Honey Boy" is a cry of pain for the neglected boy Otis was, but it is also a cry of pain for James.

NY Post Full Review
Excellent ...a tremendously well-made movie. With its kaleidoscopic color scheme and hazy recollections of pain, it's both entrancing and sad.LaBeouf also has a gift for writing fleshed-out characters, dialogue and rich settings.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good It's a movie that knows in its bones that there are no easy answers. Just the human struggle to find connection. And it's that vision of unadorned, no-bulls...t life, played out against the background of Hollywood film fantasy, that makes a connection so strong that audiences won't want to let go.
