WUD Film presents "Beautiful Boy" (2018) in collaboration with Live Free Madison.

USA | 120 minutes | R | DVD | Dir. Felix van Groeningen

Teenager Nicolas Sheff seems to have it all with good grades and being an actor, artist, athlete, and editor of the school newspaper. When Nic's addiction to meth threatens to destroy him, his father does whatever he can to save his son and family.

"It is a film of rare emotional complexity and punch - not just wincingly sharp on the business of addiction in particular, but also a heart-piercing ode to fatherhood at large," - Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

These free screenings are intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff, and Union members and guests.
