    Plot Synopsis:
    The unexpected return of 19-year-old Ben Burns to his family home on Christmas Eve morning. Some, like mother Holly (Roberts), are overjoyed by his presence. Others, like sister Ivy (Hedges’ Lady Bird compatriot Kathryn Newton), seem to remember Ben’s past with substance abuse all too well. The drama unfolds over a 24-hour period. As the logline suggests, truths are revealed and “a mother’s undying love for her son is tested as she does everything in her power to keep him safe.”

    People have been predicting Julia Roberts for supporting but she was billed first in the teaser (not sure if that it just a marketing strategy) and seems to be lead.

    Her son’s the main character. Her star billing has everything to do with being the biggest name attached.

    If Boy Erased is a hit, Lucas might be looking at two Oscar nominations.

    The plot synopsis suggests she’s lead lol.

    it would be an interesting battle between Nicole and Julia for Oscar #2 on both their 5th noms.

    America’s sweetheart and box office magnet of the 90s and 00s and consistent filmography

    vs

    Experimental shaky filmography but more critically acclaimed roles and performances

    Supporting.

    I have a feeling she’ll be lead, especially if they push Hedges in supporting which they might considering he’s already in lead for Boy Erased.

    I prefer Roberts and Kidman winning 2nd Best Actress statuettes. But the reality is they’re in an Ingrid Bergman / Maggie Smith transitional space in their careers.

    Amy Adams narrative in her category is real opposition to preventing that from happening.

    What is awesome is that the two best young actors in Hollywood today are taking on roles that have such important messages in our society. Hedges and Chalamet rock.

    Oh damn, you know I’m not really a fan of Roberts in general but she really impressed me with that clip.
