Past Oscar-nominees Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet look like possible future winners in the first trailer for Beautiful Boy.

Based on the best-selling memoirs from David and Nic Sheff, director Felix Van Groeningen’s film stars Carell and Chalamet as the father-son duo and chronicles “the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years.”

“There are moments that I look at him, this kid that I raised, who I thought I knew inside and out, and I wonder who he is,” admits the elder Sheff (Carell).

Beautiful Boy, which also stars Amy Ryan and Maura Tierney, opens in theaters on Oct. 12.
