Peter Hedges is one among the very few underrated filmmakers in Hollywood Film Industry. He is well known for his critically acclaimed works like About a Boy for which he has received an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay. Even the versatile filmmaker’s last outing The Odd Life of Timothy Green was a tremendous endeavour. Accordingly, his upcoming venture is garnering the needed buzz around.
Ben Is Back which is gearing up for the release on December 7th – 2018 is holding decent expectations. Even the trailer of the film looks promising while featuring commendable actors like Julia Roberts and Lucas Hedges in the title roles. Ben Is Back was also officially selected for Toronto International Film Festival and the film had its screening on September 8th – 2018 in TIFF. After the screening main jury of TIFF has also appreciated the movie by sharing their positive reviews.
In spite of containing intriguing content Peter Hedges film is lacking proper promotions. Even the film is slated for a release in India on the same day itself. Hoping that Ben Is Back will emerge with the notable buzz and perform strongly at the box-office with a wide word of mouth as well.
