The Footcandle Film Society will be screening the film HONEY BOY on Wednesday, February 12th and Thursday, February 13th at the Carolina Theater in downtown Hickory. Showtime is 7:00pm both nights. All current Footcandle members are admitted free; all guest tickets are $5.00 at the door.
About the film: From a screenplay by Shia LaBeouf, based on his own experiences, award-winning filmmaker Alma Har'el brings to life a young actor's stormy childhood and early adult years as he struggles to reconcile with his father through cinema and dreams. The film fictionalizes his childhood's ascent to stardom and subsequent adult crash-landing into rehab and recovery. LaBeouf takes on the daring and therapeutic challenge of playing a version of his own father, an ex-rodeo clown and a felon. Har'el's feature narrative debut is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between filmmaker and subject, exploring art as medicine and imagination as hope.
Note: This film is rated R for pervasive language, some sexual content and drug use.
