Ben Is Back Instrueret af Peter Hedges
Scenes like these lend an intriguing sense of community to the film—a world in which coming home from treatment means running, constantly, into one’s past mistakes. But Peter Hedges, a strong writer, doesn’t make the most of it as a director. His script displays a sense of intimate knowledge—its situations feel thought through, even as you wish he’d made more of this material.

When movies go wrong, it usually happens gradually, a slow devolution borne of a series of missteps or a conceit that couldn’t be sustained over the long haul. With Ben is Back, the shift is remarkably sudden, like Wile E. Coyote speeding off the edge of a cliff, hovering for just a second, and then plummeting into the canyon below.

“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.
