Ashby starring Mickey Rourke and Nat Wolff is about Ed (Wolff) who moves to Virginia from Oregon with his mom and befriends his neighbor, Ashby (Rourke.) First their relationship starts as a school project and a way for Ashby to get toa nd from places as he can't drive because he's dying. However, their bond becomes something more.
Ed joins the football team, looks out for his mother (Sarah Silverman) and likes a girl (Emma Roberts) from his school. His father makes promises that he can't keep. But the more Ed and Ashby get to know each other, including knowing Ashby's secret that he is an assassin, makes an impact on Ed and they learn a lot from each other.
This movie told a nice story and how a stranger can suddenly change your life. I don't think this movie was different than any other or there was anything unique about it, but it was still a good movie and enjoyable to watch. It felt predictable in a sense, but if you're looking for a feel-good movie, go ahead and watch it.
