Shia Labeouf made his screenplay debut with his latest film project Honey Boy . He was able to work directly on this film project after he left the rehab.
Over the years, we've seen Shia Labeouf turn from a healthy kid star on the Disney Channel into a wild person doing all sorts of weird and crazy things. Regardless, I was always a fan of his work. There's no denying that the guy did some amazing movies and great performances in his life.
Not only Labeouf wrote Honey Boy but he also starred. In fact, he plays his own dad in the movie, and it's a pretty powerful show.
The film itself tells the heartbreaking autobiographical story of Shia's relationship with his father and how that relationship influenced him in his life. His father was described as mentally and physically abusive to his son. This is a guy who did not know how to be a father, but no matter how, his son wanted to have him around, hoping his father would one day wake up and be the father he always wanted.
The movie hit me emotionally hard. It was not easy to see a father treating his son so imprudently. As a father, I know that I'm not perfect, but I really try my best to let my girls know that I love them.
I grew up in the entertainment world too. When I was a kid I was a kid actor and my dad would lead me from audition to audition and accompany me. I've never had the experience that Lebeouf portrayed in his movie, but I've seen other parents treating their kids like this. It has always been unpleasant to see, but I've always tried to reach her friends.

The film dealt with difficult issues that were hard to see, but I still loved it, and it gave me a new respect for Labeouf, both as a person and as a talent. I hope he will write more movies because the script was so good for that. He poured himself into this film, you can say that it was very personal and you could see and feel it in the movie. It took courage to tell this story of his life, and after it was over, I just wanted to hug him.
The film was staged by Alma Har and she did a wonderful job bringing Shia's story to life. She has brought this story to life in a way that feels so raw and so real, and you can see the love and care she has for the material.
This is definitely one of my favorites of the festival and when it finally comes I hope you go and check it out. Here is the official summary:
When 12-year-old Otis succeeds as a child television star in Hollywood, his ex-rodeo clown father returns to be his guardian. When Otis does not play a charming audience, he spends his days with his father in a long-stay motel on the outskirts of the city and suffers the abuse of his overpowering father. Honey Boy follows two threads of time and observes the controversial relationship between father and son and their attempts to improve them over the course of a decade.
This stunning collaboration between screenwriter / star Shia LaBeouf and director Alma Har & # 39; el paints a painful but inspired portrait of growing up. LaBeouf's script delves deep into Otis' psychology to uncover uncomfortable truths about the lasting effects of abuse, while Harle creates an exciting, stylish film that never loses its warm, heartfelt center. Two outstanding young actors, Lucas Hedges and Noah Jupe, play Otis at different times, and their intense performances show an emotionally rude character that is simultaneously and paradoxically driven by anger and a desire for forgiveness.
