After turning heads with his performance in Luca Guadagnino s Oscar-winning Call Me By Your Name, Chalamet has signed on for a number of big films, working with people like Greta Gerwig (again) and Denis Villeneuve. Before all that, though, he appears in this drama alongside Steve Carell, and both of them have got people talking about awards.

While it may not shed any new light on the nature of addiction, the film is a showcase for Chalamet and Carell, who make the most of their meaty roles.
