Streamline recommends “Beautiful Boy” on Amazon Prime this week. Amazon added this movie on Jan. 4. The company distributed the movie, which debuted in theaters back in October. (Streamline recommended this last week, but Amazon Prime didn’t add anything notable in the last few days, so I’m highlighting this star-studded movie again.)
