  1. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Ben Is Back

    There is a melodramatic turn this movie takes that is not really needed but the attention to addictive behavior and it's consequences on an ordinary town is so well established early on that I could forgive the faux pas the screenwriter decided to make.

  2. catarinaafreitas's rating of the film Ben Is Back

    Este foi um grande ano para o cinema. Acabou com mais uma filme grandioso, cuidadoso e importante. Bastante simples, direto, e verdadeiro. Morro de medo todos os dias pelos meus amigos e pessoas de quem gosto que se metem nestas vidas... Morro de medo todos os dias que não hajam mais dias para elas. Mais um exemplo de um grande filme que veio para ajudar. Se tiverem alguém nestas vidas, "never give up on them"

  5. smokescreen's rating of the film Ben Is Back

    Simple and yet so, so raw. You feel her pain, her fear and her love so strongly.

  6. whimsicalmelancholy's rating of the film Ben Is Back

    such a slow and sweet experience. Julia Roberts' acting was very effortlessly natural. and yeah thats right, never give up on them. thanks VIFF for the free movie // 3.5

  7. Ryan Christopher Coleman's rating of the film Ben Is Back

    gripping. saw in a small screening room on a rolly office chair seated between two old white guys, i would have wept sniffles and heaved a lot more without them there. Julia Roberts is, can we finally acknowledge this (August Osage County, The Mask) raw as hell!!!!! Julia has really been on one lately! I have no personal experience with or connection to addiction and i was ROCKED by this deep, probing portrayal.
