Plot

Biographical film about a child actor, Shia LaBeouf, and his delinquent, alcoholic and addicted to heroine father (a professional clown in a law moment). Both of them try to fix their relationship, full of conflicts, for over a decade. The film is directed by Alma Har'el and stars LaBeouf himself (who is also the screenwriter with the false name Otis Lort) as his father. Young Shia will be played by Oscar nominee Lucas Hedges, while his child version Noah Jupe will become this controversial, unique and unrepeatable actor. This is the story of a child forced to stop being a child, and a father who never behaved like a father. LaBeouf wrote this story, which is the story of himself and his relationship with his own father, while he was in rehab after being arrested in 2017. LaBeouf used the process of writing the script for the movie as wat of overcoming the PTSD that he suffered and every problem the bad relationship with his father had created in him, and that are reflected in the film. Father and son reunited after he wrote the script, and after years of not staying in touch with each other and not speaking to each other. The cast also features Martin Starr, Maika Monroe, Natasha Lyonne, Laura San Giacomo and Clifton Collins Jr., among others. Hide full plot... Show full plot

Trivia Honey Boy

When LaBeouf was a child, Honey Boy was the nickname that his father used to call him. Shia LaBeouf plays Lucas Hedges' father, although he is only ten years older than Hedges. The project was born from the different sessions therapies that LaBeouf has been doing for a few months, specially after his arrest in July 2017.
