Although Hal Ashby directed a remarkable string of widely admired classics throughout the 1970s – Shampoo, Coming Home, The Last Detail – he is often overlooked amid the crowd of luminaries from his generation.

Amy Scott’s exuberant portrait uses rare archival materials, interviews, personal letters and audio recordings to reveal a passionate, obsessive artist whose films blended honesty, irreverence, humour and humanity.
