Beautiful Boy Trailer Starring Maria Bello and Michael Sheen

Beautiful Boy Trailer: A Harrowing Drama With a Different POV

Usually when movies tackle a teenage murder or school shooting, most of the focus is understandably given to the victims and their families. But one thing I've always wondered about is the gunman's parents and the guilt they're left to live with. The upcoming film Beautiful Boy shifts the story to their perspective.

Michael Sheen and Maria Bello star as a couple whose lives are rocked after receiving the news that their 18-year-old son opened fire at his college, killing students and faculty members before turning the gun on himself. His actions leave the mother and father completely bewildered: what did they do wrong? Was their son a bad person? It creates a strain on them not only as parents but on their marriage as well, as they try to understand their son's behavior and grieve his death. The trailer looks heavy to say the least, but it appears the film also has a message of hope, which should make it more palatable. Take a peek after the jump.

Wow, JFX, are you watching the same performances as me? I have seen Michael Sheen in six or seven movies now and I find him nothing but uber talented. He's so believable and engaging, and he commits to every role and disappears into the character. I would easily rank him with today's elite, especially in terms of character acting. As for the trailer (in which he is also fantastic), this movie looks fantastic. Sure, it has the potential to be "melodramatic" (although I have a hard time believing that Sheen or the equally breathtaking Maria Bello could be guilty of bad acting), but it looks heartwrenching and tragic, which are my favorite kinds of stories. I love the title, too...

It's always good to see Michael Sheen in a non-Tony Blair role.

I'll probably see this even though I know I'll probably cry throughout the entire movie.
