|Timothée Chalamet in Beautiful Boy (Amazon Studios)|
Plan B and Amazon Studios are being smart in getting Timothée out there and promoting the film at industry screenings in LA (SAG-AFTRA earlier this past week), and he's now at the Santa Barbara Film Festival before he takes off for Spain for the San Sebastian Film Festival and other festivals throughout October, including London's BFI film festival. Surely they are aware of the buzz and they want to capitalize on it and do as much press and interviews prior to the limited release of Beautiful Boy on October 12th. Timmy has generated so much good will and PR from his historic nomination as Best Actor for Call Me By Your Name earlier this year, that it can only help him this time around in actually winning. But, one day at a time as many more supporting actor performances have yet to be seen. However, as of right now, it's looking very good for Timothée - he's off to a great start. The key is to build up and continue this momentum without over exposure and marketing fatigue. The timely issue of the devastating effects of meth addiction to the addicted and their family is a universal matter and a pressing concern for millions of people around the world. Timmy's frank portrayal of the downfall of this addiction is something to see as it will stick with you and haunt you!
