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).

"Nobody in American movies today can get at the beating heart of a conflicted, hurting post-adolescent the way Lucas Hedges can."
Michael Philips - CHICAGO TRIBUNE

"BEN IS BACK is really Holly’s story, and notwithstanding the all-around excellence of the cast, it’s very much Roberts’s movie. This isn’t a matter of ego or showboating. On the contrary, what is so moving and effective about Roberts’s work here is her shrewd subversion of her long-established persona."
A.O. Scott - THE NEW YORK TIMES

" Ben Is Back doesn't sugar-coat the harsh reality of this family's struggle, but like the year's other astringent family drug drama Beautiful Boy, frames it with an abundance of life, love and hope."
Rex Reed - OBSERVER
