We were intrigued by Honey Boy, the latest stop on Shia LaBeouf’s slow train to redemption after a decade and change of highly public fuckups. The film, directed by documentarian Alma Har’el, is a fictionalized retelling of LaBeouf’s own dysfunctional childhood, written by and starring LaBeouf in a role based on his father, an ex-rodeo clown and heroin addict. It’s a fascinating experiment in drama as therapy, and we’re sponsoring an advance screening of the film on Thursday, November 14 at 7:00 PM at the Arclight Chicago so you can peer into LaBeouf’s memories along with him.
