Honey Boy" movie was "tough to watch".

After premiering at Sundance, Shia LaBeouf’s latest project “Honey Boy” is praised by critics across Hollywood. That said, LaBeouf said his parents found the semi-autobiographical movie “tough to watch”.

In an interview with “The Hollywood Reporter”, the actor revealed that his mother and father had seen the movie. “It was tough for them to watch it, yeah, but I think, also, they can have distance with it as well,” he explained. “I mean they really, more than they care about this movie shit, they care about their kid, you know? So they’re happy with my reaction to it, and they know that I wouldn’t have shared it with them unless I was proud of it.”

The 33-year-old actor wrote the movie as part of his rehabilitation program and is titled after his childhood nickname. The movie centers around his relationship with his father, which is played by LaBeouf. His father in the movie is an alcoholic who attempts to raise his son to become a successful actor. Lucas Hedges and Noah Jupe both play LaBeouf at different ages.
