Lucas Hedges is one of the most talented young actors in Hollywood right now, so it makes sense that a studio would partner him up with a legend like Julia Roberts.
Both Roberts and Hedges star in the upcoming family drama, Ben is Back. In the movie, Hedges plays a troubled boy who arrives home on Christmas Eve unexpectedly after skipping rehab.
Roberts plays his concerned mother. The movie has been receiving lots of praise from critics who saw early screenings. Peter Debruge, one of the most respected critics in the game, said this in his review of the film…
“The entire film is that rarest of gifts for its cast, providing virtually every character with a chance to play not only the present moment, but the complicated history they’ve established with Ben in the past, as well as whatever chance they see in the troubled young man’s future.”
This movie could take home a few awards. It’s set to be released in prime award season on December 7, 2019.
