Director Andrew Ahn’s intimate drama revolves around the unlikely friendship formed between a lonely young boy (Lucas Jaye) and his new octogenarian neighbor (the late Brian Dennehy). As his mother (Hong Chau) looks on, he provides the widowed veteran with a youthful outlook and begins to discover a newfound maturity within himself.

Understated yet powerful, Driveways is a character study anchored in fundamental decency — and a poignant farewell to Brian Dennehy.

“Driveways” is the best kind of slice-of-life movie, reminding us all that big stories come out of little things, and that all of our journeys have value, even if we spend years at a time just getting by.
