About the Movie

From Academy Award®-Nominated Director Rob Reiner (STAND BY ME, A FEW GOOD MEN), BEING CHARLIE is a coming of age story about a troublesome 18-year-old (Nick Robinson of JURRASSIC WORLD) who breaks out of a youth drug treatment clinic and returns home to Los Angeles. He finds his former-actor father (Cary Elwes of THE PRINCESS BRIDE) is running for Governor and his parents are forcing him to enter adult rehab. There he meets Eva, a beautiful but troubled girl, and is confronted by his issues with drugs, love, and family. Also starring Common.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: When Charlie inevitably relapses and trolls Los Angeles's meaner streets for a fix, you feel little sympathy for a character so shallow he seems incapable of introspection. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, May 5, 2016

Rotten: a well-meaning study of addiction that hits too many banal beats to snap us to attention. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, May 5, 2016

Rotten: Honesty and good intentions don't compensate for the mediocrity of the work. – Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter, May 3, 2016

Rotten: Even as enlightenment occurs, Charlie is still mostly a guy you want to punch in the face. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, May 12, 2016
