Timothée Chalamet Nominated for Golden Globe for Portrayal of APB's Nic Sheff in "Beautiful Boy"
10 Dec 2018
Nic Sheff’s heartbreaking and inspiring struggle with substance use disorder is the story of Beautiful Boy, now a major motion picture starring Timothée Chalamet as Nic and Steve Carell as his father, David. Chalamet, an up and coming actor, has been nominated for a Golden Globe for his genuine performance of Sheff. The film chronicles the heartbreaking and hopeful experience of survival, relapse and recovery in a family over many years.
Sharing an unglamorized, authentic and heart-touching story of relapse and recovery that is deeply rooted in mental illness, Nic has been recognized as “a life-changing speaker.” Sober since 2011, he continues to write and travel the country speaking about overcoming adversity, substance use disorders, mental illness and recovery.
