“Beautiful Boy,” starring Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet, is based on a pair of best-selling memoirs by the San Francisco journalist David Sheff and his oldest son, Nic, that chronicled Nic’s descent into crystal-meth addiction. It tells the story of David Sheff’s anguished but impotent crusade to snatch his son from the jaws of a life-crushing drug dependence. This film enables viewers to see the way addiction is lived beside, by the person suffering and by the family. It is a heartbreaking and inspiring story of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years.
