Amy Scott


Hal Ashby directed a remarkable string of acclaimed, widely admired classics throughout the 1970s (such as *Harold and Maude* and *Being There*), but is often overlooked amid the crowd of luminaries from his generation. Amy Scott’s exuberant portrait explores that curious oversight. Featuring interviews with film legends that worked with him and were inspired by him such as Adam McKay, Alexander Payne, David O. Russell, Dustin Hoffman, Hal Ashby, Jane Fonda, Jeff Bridges, and Judd Apatow. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the **Sundance Film Festival.** Nominated for the Best Documentary and Best First Time Director Award at the **Critics' Choice Documentary Awards.** "*A most welcome reassessment of one of the most important figures in 1970s Hollywood.*" - Todd McCarthy, ***The Hollywood Reporter***
