Driveways

In Brian Dennehy’s last film, he plays Del, a recently widowed war veteran. He lives next door to a woman who dies suddenly. Her sister Kathy and 8-year-old son Cody show up to take care of her estate. Cody, who tends to keep to himself and doesn’t easily take to the two teenagers who live down the street, goes over to Del’s after one particularly nasty encounter, and the two of them begin to form a friendship. The film is a character study, and the three leads help elevate the story into something that feels fresh, real, and relevant. I really enjoyed watching the friendship that develops between Cody and Del and how the three leads become changed by that relationship. Thumbs up from me for a film that moves slowly and tells a sweet story without it ever becoming sappy. (2019; 3.5 Stars)
