ASHBY is a coming of age/approaching death comedy drama. A seventeen-year-old kid (Ed) trying to understand who he wants to be in the world, befriends a terminally ill ex-CIA contract killer (Ashby) who is trying to make peace with his life and God before he goes. 'Making peace' might just entail killing three old bosses who have tricked him into breaching his strange moral code.
A restaurant scene early in the movie was filmed inside The Diamond. Later in the movie, they sat in vehicle outside The Diamond, but the restaurant scene that followed was not inside The Diamond, but rather appeared to be inside a Diner called Mattie's (which, unfortunately, is now gone).

The MRI machine in Eloise's home would have pulled the bicycle and other nearby ferromagnetic metal items towards it's extremely powerful magnet in a dangerous fashion at the moment it was turned on. Even non-ferromagnetic metals can interact with an MRI ( such as her earrings) in such a way that the MRI image produced would likely be distorted. See more »
I guess, Eddy, I should say something profound, these being my last words more or less. I got nothin'. Well I guess; be careful of who and what you believe in. Find someone who you love fiercely and who loves you back the same way. And you treat them well and you know it's of value. Also, you shouldn't be scared of the world Ed Wallis. I kinda suspect the world should be scared of you.

This one was interesting. It felt like a movie about a shy kid. But he isn't shy. He has no problems talking to people, just seem to not feel a need to, or something. Story wise he's gets an assignment in class to write about some old guy. Which is practically placed next door. Since the trailer shows a fair bit, I allow myself to reveal that the old guy, is a former assassin for CIA.
Back to the kid. He loves football. Has a rig in the backyard. Watches matches at school. Where he meets a girl that has a big part in the game.
I really like the relationship between the kid, and the assassin. Old guy tells what he thinks, and doesn't sugarcoat it. The movie is to a big degree about not lying to yourself, even if you don't like the truth.
His relationship with the girl Emma Roberts is playing is slightly weird, but works well.
The movie doesn't really leave you thinking for the next week, but it's a good movie. Not great, but good.
