Here is the plot description for “Beautiful Boy”:

“Beautiful Boy” is an unconventional love story that explores the journey of a married couple on the verge of separation. They must turn to each other to overcome unimaginable heartbreak as well as brave the intense media scrutiny following their son’s shocking act of violence. Bill (Michael Sheen) and Kate’s (Maria Bello) already strained marriage is tested as they realize all they have left with each other is their shared grief and confusion along with the unfortunate legacy of their son.

While they struggle numbly through the media onslaught and the awkward pity from relatives and friends, the life-altering event forces Bill and Kate to face their feelings of guilt, rage, blame, self-discovery and ultimately hope so they can finally see each other and their chance for happiness again with clear eyes.

The movie trailer for “Beautiful Boy” can be watched now below.

Beautiful Boy - How could parents get on with life...

It is hard and I can’t imagine what it would feel like….Terribly broken hearted but with the love of spouse/family/friends life can be a little less painful and always keeping that child in your heart and memory.

By keeping lines of communication open and not being afraid to share their grief. By finding a balance between supporting each other and individually grieving.

That's a tuffy...

And I can only begin to formulate a very basic response, as the variables will affect the outcome, or possible future, greatly. Seeking therapy would be a good first step towards going through the phases of loss.

It’s something you NEVER get over.
But if you’re lucky you can make your relationship with your spouse stronger if you love and support each other.

It won't be easy.

But they will need each other as well as their family and friends. They have to be able to acknowledge and understand the loss they experienced and be able to move on into the new life without forgetting the old. It won’t be easy, but it can be done.

Parents must realize they need to move forward—possibly create a new distraction—like have another child, or adopt a pet—whatever it takes to move out of depression.
