Ben is Back trailer: Julia Roberts struggles to deal with Ben Hedges' drug addiction

()

We got a first look at Ben is Back in August with the teaser trailer and a full length version was released this afternoon. Ben Hedges looks certain to be in the Oscar mix once again this year with his other film, Boy Erased, a dead cert to be in the conversation. This has Oscar bait written all over it. Let's just hope it is of the good kind. Check out the trailer for Ben is Back above to see more.

19 year-old Ben Burns (Hedges) unexpectedly returns home to his family’s suburban home on Christmas Eve morning. Ben’s mother, Holly (Roberts), is relieved and welcoming but wary of her son staying clean. Over a turbulent 24 hours, new truths are revealed, and a mother’s undying love for her son is tested as she does everything in her power to keep him safe.

Ben Hedges' father Ben wrote the screenplay, with Kathryn Newton, Courtney B. Vance, Tim Guinee and Jakari Fraser also featuring in the support cast.

Ben is Back is released in the US at the start of December but there is still no date for the UK just yet, but we expect it to be January/February 2019.
