Shia LaBeouf started out as a child actor with single episode parts in huge shows like ER, The X-Files, and Touched By An Angel before scoring big with the popular Disney show Even Stevens, in which he starred alongside Christy Carlson Romano. Of course, everyone knows about his big film roles in Holes, the Transformers franchise, and (unfortunately for many) Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. All of this success came at a price though and LaBeouf often found himself in trouble, usually with alcohol-related incidents.
That brings us to the movie Honey Boy and how LaBeouf is using it as both a therapeutic way to deal with his own past while showing others some of the traps in Hollywood. LaBeouf actually wrote this as part of his rehabilitation program. The film is based on LaBeouf’s own experiences as a child actor and transitioning to adulthood. LaBeouf plays the father of the young actor Otis Lort, which could have been a way for him to rationalize his real father’s actions. It is an interesting way to deal with one’s behavioral health issues and bad memories. It is almost like a real-life version of the B.A.R.F. technology Tony Stark used in Captain America: Civil War.
