Shia LaBeouf attended the Sundance Film Festival with his beau, Fka Twigs to premiere his new movie, "Honey Boy' which has now been picked up by Amazon.

The semi-autobiographical drama 'Honey Boy' centers around LaBeouf'sown relationship with his alcoholic father.


The movie has already received critical praise with The Hollywood Reporter's Jon Frosch calling it "a sensitive, sincere portrait of a child actor's dysfunctional upbringing and its devastating fallout." 

“It’s strange to fetishize your pain and make a product out of it,” LaBeouf said at the Sundance premiere. 

“And you feel guilty about that. It felt very selfish. This whole thing felt very selfish. I never went into this thinking, ‘Oh let me f*cking help people.’ That wasn’t my goal. I was falling apart.”

THR also revealed that Sony Pictures Classics and HBO had been "chasing the pic" before Amazon sealed the deal. And why wouldn't they? Amazon is owned by the richest man in modern history.
