    Documentary

    In Amy Scott’s comprehensive and affectionate documentary, the capricious life and career of one of Hollywood’s iconic filmmakers, Hal Ashby, is brought to light. Deftly weaving archival footage, on-camera interviews, and Ashby’s jocular letters and memos (expertly voiced by Ben Foster), Scott reveals a complex and singular visionary who directed some of the most seminal films of the 1970s including the indelible HAROLD AND MAUDE (1971), THE LAST DETAIL (1973), and BEING THERE (1979).
