A married couple on the verge of separation are leveled by the news their 18-year-old son committed a mass shooting at his college, then took his own life.
Austin Nichols: "The movie is called 'Beautiful Boy', it's with Michael Sheen. It's just an incredible piece of writing about a husband and wife who find out their son was involved in a campus shooting. I play a writer who writes about the tragedy."
Alan Tudyk: “I have a new movie called Beautiful Boy that is going to be in Toronto Film Festival in September with Maria Bello and Michael Sheen. I’m interested to see that because it is very different… It’s a quiet drama... It’s really harrowing in places.”
Beautiful Boy is about Kate and Bill Carroll, a couple played by Bello and Sheen, that are trying to glue the pieces of their life together after they receive news that their teenage son, Sam, commits suicide after being the shooter in a college massacre. The couple moves to live with Kate’s brother and his wife, played by Tudyk and actress, Moon Bloodgood.
