Roadside Attractions has released the official Ben is Back trailer, the upcoming drama directed and written by Oscar nominee Peter Hedges (About a Boy, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Dan in Real Life). Check out the trailer now in the player below!
Ben is Back stars Oscar winner Julia Roberts (Erin Brockovich, August: Osage County) and Oscar nominee Lucas Hedges (Manchester by the Sea) in a story that shows us how far we will go to protect the ones we love.
19-year-old Ben Burns (Lucas Hedges) unexpectedly returns home to his family’s suburban home on Christmas Eve morning. Ben’s mother, Holly (Julia 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 is Back also stars Courtney B. Vance (The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story) and Kathryn Newton (Lady Bird).
Color Force and Black Bear Pictures are producing alongside Hedges, with 30WEST and Black Bear fully financing. LD Entertainment, Lionsgate, and Roadside Attractions will release Ben is Back in select theaters on December 7, 2018, following its world premiere at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival.
