Honey Boy is a 2019 American drama film directed by Alma Har'el (in her narrative feature directorial debut) with a screenplay by Shia LaBeouf, based on his childhood and his relationship with his father. The film stars LaBeouf, Lucas Hedges, Noah Jupe and FKA Twigs.

The story jumps from 1995 to a decade later in 2005 telling the life story of Otis played by two actors: Noah Jupe as the young 12-year-old Otis and Lucas Hedges as the 22-years-old Otis. In 2005, Otis Lort is a movie star who has an extreme alcohol problem. He crashes his car and gets into a violent, drunken altercation with police. He is forced to go to a rehab facility, where his counselor, Dr. Moreno (played by Laura San Giacomo), tells him that if he leaves the facility before they say he is ready, the court will send him to prison for his violent offenses. She says that based on what she's found Otis has PTSD, which he denies repeatedly, but she encourages him to look into his past through exposure therapy.
