Nathan Weinbender reviews "Honey Boy"

Dec 16, 2019

It's one thing to reflect on your own troubled childhood, and it's another to make a major motion picture out of it. That's what Shia LaBeouf has done, casting himself as his own father in the new film "Honey Boy," about a troubled actor looking back on his life. Nathan Weinbender says it's a tricky, messy film, but that's part of its impact.
