"Driveways is a film of modest but richly detailed pleasures, chief among them watching [Brian] Dennehy bring his signature brand of barrel-chested gruffness to a man of achingly few words." – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
Cody is a sweet, sensitive boy who doesn't always fit in easily with other kids his age. He's not bothered by spending the summer in an unfamiliar New York town while his mother, Kathy, cleans out the house left behind by his recently deceased aunt, trying to ready it for sale. As Kathy–estranged from her reclusive sister for years–learns how much she didn't know about the woman, Cody strikes up a surprising friendship with the gruff Korean War vet who lives next door. Nominated for two Independent Spirit Awards, Driveways is a beautifully observed, bittersweet drama about our lifelong search for a sense of community. With a genuine script and impeccable acting from Hong Chau (Downsizing) and Brian Dennehy (First Blood), this little gem doesn’t coax tears, but earns them.
