  • ★★★½ review by SeanMcG on Letterboxd

    Actually, you know what? This isn't half bad. Sure the delivery isn't always perfect, and sure it's somewhat of a mess, but it connects you to its characters in a way that most director wish they could acheive. Not bad. Not bad at all.

  • ★★★★½ review by Hanna Anuar on Letterboxd

    Ashby is a good combination of funny and sad. I absolutely love how heartwarming it is.

  • ★★★½ review by Chris Bryan on Letterboxd

    Second movie I've seen Nat Wolff in and I'm calling it, he's a future star. I said the same thing about Miles Teller after a couple viewings. I thought this one was great. Rourke and Wolff were great in this modern age coming of age story.
