Official Selection: Sundance
Legendary director Hal Ashby directed a string of classic movies and was a key figure in the New Hollywood of the seventies. In Hal, director Amy Scott offers a fascinating biography of the filmmaker, that examines his life and work through interviews with Jon Voight, Rosanna Arquette, Beau Bridges, Robert Towne, Jane Fonda, and Judd Apatow, and many others.
“Scott has dug very deep to unearth a great deal of valuable information in the way of diverse commentary and visual documentation, the end result being a very keen appreciation of a key figure from one of Hollywood’s most fascinating and rewarding eras.” – Hollywood Reporter
