Julia Roberts pulled double duty at this year's Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). On Saturday night she walked the red carpet for Ben is Back, her second project of the festival to have its world premiere (her other, Homecoming, premiered Thursday night).
The film features Roberts as a mother welcoming her son (Lucas Hedges) back from rehab, while the rest of her family isn't fully sold on his sobriety. The film also stars Kathryn Newton, Courtney B. Vance, and David Zaldivar.
Ben is Back opens wide Dec. 7.
