  • Critic Reviews of "Ben Is Back"

    Sydney Morning Herald
    January 29, 2019

    Showy acting is popular, but I think Peter and Lucas Hedges...do their best work in the quieter moments, in which they take us deep inside a problem that has tragic consequences for so many people.

    "Ben is Back" is one of those awards season films that looks on paper to be a slam dunk: Mother and child relationship, drugs and drama is a cocktail for Oscar gold. In this case, the dunk is a dud.

    December 30, 2018

    Unfortunately, by adding cumbersome elements to the narrative, it ultimately detracts from the core human story and causes the viewer to leave the film dissatisfied...

    Time Out

    The miniaturization of scope ends up making everything feel intensely melodramatic, while the frenetic, breathless editing -- capably realized by Ian Blume -- transforms even the most innocuous kitchen argument into a drug-induced fit of mania.

    Minneapolis Star Tribune
    December 20, 2018

    This is an intimate, incredibly tense drama about a troubled family battling raw emotional pains, a bare-bones and bare-knuckled look at the destructive powers of addiction.

    The New Republic

    The movie's real achievement lies in Roberts's performance, which is possibly her best. Holly is incandescent with worry. She's good and kind and intimate.

    A stimulating drama thanks to stellar performances from Julia Roberts and Lucas Hedges. [Full Review in Spanish]

    The New Paper (Singapore)

    While the film seems to drag on at times, it succeeds in sustaining the suspense surrounding their reunion.

    The Straits Times (Singapore)

    The climax is a well-crafted cat-and-mouse game and is perfectly enjoyable on its own. But one wishes it had not been triggered by so silly a premise.

    ABC Radio Brisbane

    The performances are great but Ben is Back does feel unnecessarily formulaic in places.

    February 08, 2019

    Despite its Hollywood gloss - it's a Julia Roberts film, after all - the film does venture into some of the grittier realities about those stricken with addiction.

    February 07, 2019

    Features good and incisive writing from Peter Hedges (who also directs) and effective performances from Roberts and Hedges... But not even their work can quite justify their increasingly tedious and unbelievable surroundings.
