honey boy red band trailer FKA twigs Lucas Hedges Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf‘s tumultuous career has been well documented by the media, but in his new film Honey Boy he takes a long, hard look in the mirror by directly addressing his life’s ups and downs. LaBeouf plays his real-life father in the Alma Har’el-directed picture about a young actor attempting to reconcile with his dad following a turbulent upbringing.

Noah Jupe (A Quiet Place) and Lucas Hedges (Boy Erased and Manchester by the Sea) star alongside Shia, portraying a younger and older version of Otis Lort. Lort’s life is based on that of LaBeouf’s. Again, LaBeouf plays his own father, an ex-rodeo clown and a felon. FKA twigs also appears in Honey Boy to make her feature film debut, playing a friend to the younger Otis.

In addition to starring in the film, Shia is responsible for the screenplay, as he has tamed up with award-winning filmmaker Alma Har’el who directs his feature narrative debut. You can look forward to Honey Boy coming to theaters November 8.

Not NYC, not LA.
