HONEY BOY, starring Noah Jupe, is now available to stream on Amazon Prime. Shia LaBeouf originally wrote the script as a form of therapy while in rehab. Directed by Alma Har’el, the script is based on Shia’s childhood and his relationship with his father. The film also stars Shia himself alongside Lucas Hedges and FKA Twigs.

Noah’s performance has had the critics raving:

Vanity Fair
‘young Otis, played by the remarkably mature Noah Jupe, who turns in the best performance of this film, communicates the double bind of love and alienation with mesmerizing candor.’

Rendy Reviews
‘The breakout shining star of the film is Noah Jupe who delivers a magnificent performance. In the midst of this terrible environment that young Otis lives in, Jupe brilliantly captures the childlike innocence that he desperately desires even when adult situations are forced upon him. This 12-year-old kid being forced to depart from childhood in order to survive his father adds another layer of tragedy in this story and Jupe walks a perfect line that not many child actors can. Whenever the film cuts from a segment of 12-year-old Otis to 22-year-old Otis, you heavily sympathize with him and the person the film is based on.’

The Film Stage
‘Jupe is fantastic as the 12-year-old Otis’

We Live Entertainment
‘After his fantastic success in A Quiet Place last year, Noah Jupe continues to stun in a role that will undoubtedly get people talking. For such a young actor, he took on a very challenging and mature part, and with such tenacity. Lucas Hedges is easily the treasure of his generation. Every role he tackles is superbly done and only makes us appreciate him even more. This complex relationship relied entirely on the chemistry between Jupe and LaBeouf, and they nail it. Their relationship is authentic and their chemistry genuinely electrifying. Each of them disappeared into their characters, forcing the audience to take a deep, and at times, uncomfortable look at the relationship between them.’

Geek Tyrant
‘Noah Jupe plays the younger version of Otis while Lucas Hedges plays the older, and they both give stunning performances.’

Film Threat
‘Jupe is such an immense up-and-coming talent (seen last year in A Quiet Place), going toe-to-toe with LaBeouf in some of the film’s most difficult scenes.’

‘Jupe is mesmerizing in a performance that will immediately make you want to see him something else despite also being an active cautionary tale about child acting.’

Huffington Post
‘An astounding Noah Jupe, the 13-year-old lad whose star first shined in “Wonder” and “A Quiet Place,” portrays Otis as a kid.’
