Sander’s review published on Letterboxd:
I hated this movie. Beautiful Boy is clearly the better addiction-drama. Lucas Hedges is a very good actor, but Timothee is really exceptional in Beautiful Boy. Ben is Back is very cliche and predictable. Peter Hedges is not Felix van Groeningen and it shows.
Maybe I mustn't compare these two movies, but Ben is Back was so bad I couldn't not think about Beautiful Boy.
