  • "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.

  • Ahn guides his gentle second feature with a measured hand, but he and his adorable kid protagonist can't jolt the sleepy narrative out of its familiar comfort zone.

  • A lot of talented people have come together to make Driveways, a character drama... that turns out to be a small gem.

  • In Ahn's America, outsider experiences of race and sexuality are treated as mundane norms, while the mundane activities of suburban normalcy become their own eccentric journeys. A trip to the supermarket is an opportunity to accept mortality.

  • Natural, moving performances are the hallmark of this low-key, heartfelft film.

  • Andrew Ahn's Driveways [is] just the second film from a director who already shows signs of being America's closest approximation to Hirokazu Kore-eda.
