Story


"Beautiful Boy" is an unconventional love story that explores the journey of a married couple on the verge of separation, who must live with unimaginable heartbreak, and find healing through the darkest days of their lives.

Bill (Michael Sheen) and Kate (Maria Bello) hopelessly try to find some hint of an explanation after finding out that their only son committed a mass shooting at his university before taking his own life. They struggle numbly through the funeral, the media onslaught, and the awkward pity from relatives and friends. Their already strained marriage is tested as they realize all they have left with each other is their shared grief and confusion-and the unfortunate legacy of their son.

This life-altering event forces Bill and Kate to face their feelings of guilt, rage, blame, self-discovery - and ultimately hope - so that they can finally see each other and their chance for happiness again with clear eyes.
