A “coming-of-age, facing-your-death movie,” per writer-director Tony McNamara, Ashby pairs a teen ready to come out of his shell (Nat Wolff) with a retired CIA killer (Mickey Rourke) who has hidden his conscience under a rock. Add an ador-a-nerd (Emma Roberts) whose dad keeps an MRI in the garage, and you have the makings of a winning film about reconciling one’s self-image with reality. –The Hollywood Reporter
