Hull Independent Cinema: Honey Boy

Thu 6th Feb 2020 @ 7:30 pm

£5 – £7

Hull Independent Cinema: Honey Boy

Dir Alma Har’el | 2019 | USA | Cert 15 | 94 min | English language

Synopsis

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. Fictionalising LaBeouf’s childhood ascent to stardom, and subsequent adult crash-landing into rehab and recovery, Har’el casts Noah Jupe and Lucas Hedges as Otis Lort, navigating different stages in a frenetic career. LaBeouf takes on the daring and therapeutic challenge of playing a version of his own father, an ex-rodeo clown and a felon. Artist and musician FKA twigs makes her feature acting debut, playing neighbour 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 therapy and imagination as hope.

Awards and reviews

Winner, Special Jury Prize – Sundance; Winner, Screenwriter of the Year – Hollywood Film Awards; Honourable Mention, Best Film – London Film Festival

“”In a dazzling high-wire act as actor and screenwriter, LaBeouf lets loose on his own life as a child star and his relationship with his loose-cannon dad, a role he plays himself in a livewire performance that jumps off the screen.”” Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“”LaBeouf’s script crackles with penetrating dialogue. His acting … might be the finest of his career.”” Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail
