Coming Soon: Driveways

Kathy (Hong Chau), a single mother, travels with her sensitive eight-year-old son Cody (newcomer Lucas Jaye) to Kathy’s late sister’s house which they plan to clean and sell. As Kathy realizes how little she knew about her sister, Cody develops an unlikely friendship with Del (the late, great Brian Dennehy), the Korean War vet and widower who lives next door.


Over the course of a summer, and with Del’s encouragement, Cody develops the courage to come out of his shell and, along with his mother, finds a new place to call home. Driveways is a deeply touching film about human kindness from Andrew Ahn, the acclaimed indie filmmaker behind Spa Night.
