There is something beautiful about Ethan Hawke. This is an acting legend, in my opinion, a man who has put his sweat and tears into the profession of cinema, and made it better because of that effort. You don’t need to tell director Logan Marshall-Green this, he knows, and when you have an actor of Hawke’s caliber on your set, you can trust that your first movie is surrounded with good people. I just didn’t know Marshall-Green would make a movie this powerful. Adopt A Highway, is a tightly written, compact story, about a man allowed back into the world, after 20-years of prison, and finding his own purpose in life. There has been a trend in movies this year, about masculinity, what it means to be a good man, such as Ad Astra, The Irishman, and Being Frank, but Adopt A Highway might be the movie with the most emotional punch. What better person could do that other than Ethan Hawke?
