Ben is Back
A drug addicted young man shows up unexpectedly at his family's home on Christmas Eve, and his dedicated Mother does everything in her power to keep the boy from harm's way.
A few weeks after Beautiful Boy, here comes another family drama about addiction, which is a huge current problem in the U.S. The two films are similar because they show the state of addiction from both perspectives: we see how the young addict feels like, and we also share the worries of their parents. Here a loving Mother (Julia Roberts) receives Ben happily, but she soon must realize that her son is still in danger. Ben is an intelligent, charming boy who could have a great future but he is threatened by an early death instead, and his family may not have the powers to save him.
