Oscar Best Actress predictions 2019

Little Gold Men


But the QNA I did was with Peter hedges the writer and director of Ben is back, which I think we we spoke about after Toronto, which is a movie about the opioid crisis in in particular, one family, dealing with it Lucas hedges. Peter's son plays the afflicted kid where Julia Roberts place, his mom. The movie went over a treat at the festival and Julia was not there.
