Timmy is at the San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain right now and today there was a photocall for ‘Beautiful Boy’ with him and the film’s director Felix Van Groeningen. You can see images from that in the gallery. You can also see a video from the press conference here or below.
Timothée attended a press conference for ‘Beautiful Boy’ and you can see images from that in the gallery along with a couple of behind the scenes images from the movie. Timothée Chalamet Network also celebrates it’s 2 years online today. The site was opened on September 15, 2016. And to celebrate, we changed the layout to feature the newest photoshoot images. Hope you all like it.
‘Beautiful Boy’ premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last night and Timothée was in attendance. You can see images from the premiere and after party in the gallery. He also attended the IMDb studios earlier in the day and you can see images from that in the gallery as well, along with a video here or below. Some reviews have also popped up and you can read some highlights below.
In these scenes and others that find him lashing out at his astonished father, Chalamet once again illustrates an uncanny ability to merge with whatever the material demands of him. A far cry from the sexually adventurous teen of “Call Me By Your Name” or the obnoxious boyfriend of “Lady Bird,” he buries his hunky features under a messy mop of hair and a malleable expression. His face is a Roschach test of emotions, melting from grimace to eerie smirk as the character contends with the invisible processes of a shattered brain.
No matter how many times you look at Timothée Chalamet’s face, it always surprises you. He’s the rare actor you could call handsome and beautiful at the same time, and his pale stretchy features seem to wrap themselves around the emotions he’s feeling — or, in this movie, the lies he’s telling. In “Call Me by Your Name,” Chalamet had a marvelous directness, but in “Beautiful Boy” he’s transformed — he makes Nic, in his muffled millennial James Dean way, skittery and self-involved to the point of being a little disconnected.
The film is most interesting when it simply provides the opportunity to watch Chalamet. In his clean interludes, Nic is a lovely kid in every way; you’d never suspect there was a demon hiding inside him that would periodically take control of the slim body housing it. But then, of course, actors love the opportunities to go deep into madness and obsession. Chalamet is no exception but, in truth, he’s more exasperating and not as interesting in hooked mode as he is as a promising bright young thing. This guy should stay clean.
As for Chalamet, he continues to be one of the most exciting young actors working today. He plays Nic not like a caricature of an addict, but someone with a unique history and specific personality that’s being drowned by his drug habit.
Yesterday’s CinemaCon featured Timothée through a satellite connection, talking about ‘Beautiful Boy’. They also debuted a new clip from the film, which we’ll sadly probably have to wait a long time to see. But you acn read a description of it here and see a few images in the gallery.
Awards season is over and Timothée attended the last of the shows this past weekend. First up was the Independent Spirit Awards where he won the awards for Best Actor and also presented one to the Best Support Actor. Next up was the Academy Awards. Sadly, he didn’t win it, but I’m sure he will have many more nominations in the future. You can see all the event images in the gallery and see a few videos below.
Timothée attended the Vanity Fair, Barneys New York and Sony Pictures Classics Celebration of ‘Call Me By Your Name’ last night and you can see images from that in the gallery.
In other news, in addition to being up for the Best Actor award a the Independent Spirit awards tomorrow night, he is also set to appear as a presenter.
