Shia LaBeouf, Lucas Hedges, Noah Jupe, Byron Bowers, Laura San Giacomo, FKA Twigs,

From a screenplay by Shia LaBeouf, based on his own experiences, award-winning filmmaker Alma Harel brings to life a young actors stormy childhood and early adult years as he struggles to reconcile with his father through cinema and dreams. Fictionalising his childhoods ascent to stardom, and subsequent adult crash-landing into rehab and recovery, Harel casts Noah Jupe and Lucas Hedges as Otis Lort, navigating different stages in a frenetic career. LaBeouf takes on the daring and therapeutic challenge of playing a version of his own father, an ex-rodeo clown and a felon. Artist and musician FKA twigs makes her feature-film debut, playing neighbour and kindred spirit to the younger Otis in their garden-court motel home. Harels feature narrative debut is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between filmmaker and subject, exploring art as therapy and imagination as hope.
