Harold and Maude. Shampoo. Being There. Coming Home. The Last Detail. Master filmmaker Hal Ashby was responsible for directing a string of remarkable classics throughout the 1970s. Despite his uncompromising dedication to the craft, he often remains overlooked amid the crowd of luminaries like Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg from his generation. Exclusive to Golden Age in Sydney, Amy Scott’s exuberant documentary portrait explores that curious oversight, using rare archival materials, interviews, personal letters, and audio recordings to reveal a passionate, obsessive artist. Ashby was a Hollywood director who constantly clashed with the system, but also a unique soul with an unprecedented insight into the human condition whose films were an elusive blend of honesty, irreverence, humour, and humanity.

"Heartbreaking, insightful, moving, authentic, hilariously funny, and wonderfully entertaining…just like Hal Ashby’s movies themselves."
— Filmink
"An insightful and warm look at an artist whose best work always revealed a heightened social conscience."
— The Hollywood Reporter
"Gives an under-sung filmmaking giant his well-deserved close-up at long last."
— Entertainment Weekly
