      Nell Minow AWFJ.org Sometimes painful to watch, but it is also a moving depiction of a man's struggles to understand and perhaps forgive. Oct 4, 2021 Full Review Chris Stuckmann ChrisStuckmann.com The movie feels very raw. LaBeouf's voice is very unfiltered through this movie... You can tell that he's working through things as he writes the movie. Rated: B Jun 17, 2020 Full Review David Stratton The Australian ...a very personal and painful statement from LaBeouf and it's to Har'el's credit that she gives it some context and focus, as well as extracting wonderful performances from all the actors... Rated: 3.5/4 Mar 3, 2020 Full Review Paul Kanieski KSQD Community Radio Honey Boy might be LaBeouf’s ultra-personal autobiographical attempt at self-repair, but it also succeeds as a brutally honest and thoughtful reflection on a formative love-hate relationship. Jul 20, 2023 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage A muscular, potent drama that explores the relationship between contemporary men, in this case, a father and a son. [Full review in Spanish] Jul 12, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review By the final frames of Honey Boy, it becomes achingly apparent that the film is at once a work of auto-fiction and confessional. Rated: 3.5/4 Feb 22, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member It was a bit difficult to watch, which maybe was the point, but I was more interested in Lucas Hedges' performance being at the rehab; I could have seen maybe a little bit less of the childhood, but I'm probably in the minority with this opinion. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Adrianne Amazing acting and story. So many layers. Better than I expected. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/05/20 Full Review Dania The movie is so good, sad but it’s a nice one ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/24/19 Full Review Robert C The most depressing movie I've seen all year. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/23/19 Full Review casual buff Great movie with some tough scenes. Wife hated it but she’s uncultured. Good acting. Interesting ending.
