This documentary celebrates the life and work of American filmmaker Hal Ashby. While leading to a string of Oscars in the 1970s, Ashby’s unique and uncompromising genius was also the cause of his ruin. In Hollywood’s commercial environment, Ashby stuck to his defiant political views (against Vietnam, for instance), and personal style. Two or three generations later, his voice continues to resonate. The film features interviews with actors and filmmakers who talk about collaborating with Ashby, their personal relationships, and his immense impact on their work. One by one, Jane Fonda, Jon Voight, Jeff Bridges, Judd Apatow, David O. Russell, and others unravel the complex life of a man who became an icon.
