  • Shia LaBeouf reflects on his tumultuous past as as a child star in the first trailer for his forthcoming movie Honey Boy. Released on Thursday, the teaser finds LaBeouf portraying a fictionalized version of his own father. The movie also delves into LaBeouf’s struggles with the law, and his journey to reconcile with his dad and deal with his mental health, as played out by actor Lucas Hedges–who portrays an older version of the troubled actor called Otis Lort. A press release shared by Bustle reveals that, with help from director Alma Har’el, LaBeouf wanted this movie to explore, “art as medicine and imagination as hope through the life and times of a talented, traumatized performer who dares to go in search of himself.” The film hits theaters on November 8.
