Academy Award-winner Robert De Niro ("GoodFellas," "City by the Sea"), Emmy-winner Ellen Barkin ("Sea of Love," "The Big Easy") and Academy Award-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio ("The Departed," "Blood Diamond") star in the film adaptation of author Tobias Wolff's award-winning autobiographical novel. Set in the 1950s, this moving drama tells the story of a young boy and his divorced mother who travel cross-country in hopes of a better life. When his mother marries, the boy must struggle to endure a hostile and complex relationship with his tyrannical new stepfather while coming to terms with his own hopes and dreams. Newsweek called this film "stunning, smart, moving and made with passion. This is well crafted Hollywood filmmaking in full bloom."

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: A harrowing, moving drama about a young boy, his single mother, and his abusive stepfather, This Boy's Life benefits from its terrific cast, and features a breakout performance from a young Leonardo DiCaprio.
Midwest Film Journal
The film demands ominous electricity between Dwight and Toby, the latter of whom endures various and sundry humiliation and harm at the former's hands. And there are times when DiCaprio doesn't just go toe-to-toe with De Niro but feels just as tall.
