Ben is back

11 yrs 103 minutes 2018 6.7

After Ben got hurt in a snowboarding accident, he gets strong pain tablets. The doctor promises his mother Holly (Julia Roberts) that they are not addictive. But after a while, Ben is addicted and after a few years with this abuse he is put on detox. But on Christmas Eve morning, he suddenly stands outside his mother's house and waits. At Holly, the hope lights up again. He may stay for a day "just because it's Christmas" but never leave her side. But keeping her son drug free for 24 hours is both difficult and dangerous. Wherever they go, there are temptations and old acquaintances who want nothing more than Ben to go there again. Aftonbladet's Karolina Fjellborg writes that Roberts "makes one of the most powerful roles of her career."
