Kathy (Golden Globe Nominee Hong Chau), a single mother, travels with her shy 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 (Golden Globe, Tony winner and acting legend 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.

“For a movie about isolation and the risk of reaching out, it’s a generous example of how nourishing a sense of connection really is.” — David Fear, Rolling Stone
“Its performances are among the most affecting I’ve seen in quite a while.” — Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
“Driveways [is] that uncommon and all-too-welcome gift – like some kind of fragile wildflower, emerging tentatively through cracks in the concrete: a film about kindness.” — Peter Debruge, Variety
