Maria Bello and Michael Sheen Are Parents to Gunman in 'Beautiful Boy' Trailer


Maria Bello, Michael Sheen


Not only do the couple try to overcome their grief, but they also struggle to find refuge from the media onslaught after their son committed a mass shooting at his university.

The first trailer for "Beautiful Boy" has been made available for viewing pleasure, giving a preview to the indie movie which sees a tragedy from the perspective of a murder's parents. Maria Bello and Michael Sheen are portraying the couple whose lives are rocked after receiving the news that their son went on a shooting spree on his college campus before taking his own life.

Bill and Kate hopelessly try to find some hint of an explanation of their son's action. Their already strained marriage is tested as they struggle to find refuge from both the media onslaught and their mutual grief. 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.

Directed and written by Shawn Ku, "Beautiful Boy" is expected to be released sometime this spring. The drama was previously screened at 2010 Toronto Film Festival.

    I had free tickets @ TIFF for this dreck and it was LOL bad. It's a movie of the week. Bello is good but she is saddled with the awful Sheen whose American accent is laughable. Sheen is the weakest link in the movie!
