Book vs Film – Beautiful Boy

Book. Because:

  • It captures the roller-coaster and agony of living with addiction, and how trust is continuously violated.
  • By it’s very nature, the film is told from multiple perspectives, so you miss the significance of what actually happened when Beautiful Boy was published – Nic also published his own memoir, meaning you could read the stories in parallel (a highly memorable reading experience).
  • As well as a deeply personal memoir, the book is also a thorough and highly informative investigative piece on crystal meth.

Book. Film.
