Oof. Beautiful Boy, which took home a prize last September at the Toronto Film Festival, looks like some pretty heavy medicine, and the trailer is guaranteed to kick you in the emotion box. About two parents — Maria Bello and Michael Sheen trying out a Yankee accent — who find out their son is responsible for a deadly school shooting spree, it almost makes Rabbit Hole seem chipper. It also appears to share certain dramatic similarities to the upcoming Lynne Ramsay-directed We Need to Talk About Kevin. Check out the trailer below.
