While in rehab, actor Shia LaBeouf started writing a screenplay based on his stormy and traumatic experiences as a child actor living with his alcoholic father. After sending the notes to his longtime friend Alma Har’el, the script was then turned into a semi-autobiographical film, starring the young and talented Noah Jupe and featuring Lucas Hedges and FKA Twigs, while LaBeouf took the therapeutic role of playing his own father.
Alma Har’el is a music video and film director, best known for her award-winning films Bombay Beach, LoveTrue and Honey Boy, the latter of which is her debut scripted feature that premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, receiving standing ovations and the ‘Special Jury Award for Vision & Craft’.
