LD Entertainment, Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions has released the official trailer to Ben Is Back, starring Julia Roberts, Lucas Hedges, Courtney B. Vance and Kathryn Newton.
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.
Vance plays the husband to Roberts’ character and stepfather to Lucas Hedges’ character. His philosophy on how to handle her son’s return puts him at direct odds with his wife.
Written and directed by Peter Hedges (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, About a Boy), Ben Is Back will have its world premiere at the 2018 Toronto Film Festival before hitting theaters on December 7th.
Producers on the film include Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson’s Color Force and Teddy Schwarzman’s Black Bear Pictures, alongside the elder Hedges.
