Synopsis
When Holly Burn's (Julia Roberts) son Ben (Lucas Hedges) appears at the family home one Christmas eve she is pleased to see him but also frightened of the danger that follows him. She allows him to stay one day after he professes his sobriety thanks to his program. Everyone is dubious about his return including his father Neal (Courtney B. Vance ), and sister Ivy (Kathryn Newton) particularly after their house is broken into and the family dog disappears, in this story about familial love and addiction. Written and directed by Peter Hedges.

Movie Critics
Hollywood Reporter
"Another in a string of impressive turns by the young actor and one of the best things Roberts has ever done, the film is aware of the weight of its subject but loath to behave like an 'important' film -- focusing instead on the specificity of one sick young man..."
John DeFore (8 Sep 2018, )
New York Times
"[I]t’s very much Roberts’s movie....What is so moving and effective about Roberts’s work here is her shrewd subversion of her long-established persona."
A. O. Scott (5 Dec 2018, )
RogerEbert.com
"[T]he performances remain uniformly strong and hold the story together..."
Christy Lemire (7 Dec 2018, )
Variety
"[T]he entire film is that rarest of gifts for its cast, providing virtually every character with a chance to play not only the present moment, but the complicated history they’ve established with Ben in the past, as well as whatever chance they see in the troubled young man’s future."
Peter Debruge (8 Sep 2018, )
