Deserves a look

Reviewer: Derek WinnertDate: 2019-03-21

IÂÂ’m not sure I entirely believed in the story or the characters, but I did enjoy them and was engrossed in the movie, anxiously awaiting its outcome. Beautiful Boy is a rather better, more truthful movie about a doting parent and an addicted son, but it is far less entertaining or enjoyable than Ben Is Back.
