Al Pacino and Holly Hunter star in this drama from director David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Joe). Left heartbroken by the woman he loved and lost forty years ago, an eccentric small-town locksmith tries to start his life over again with the help of a new friend.... More
"A.J. Manglehorn (Pacino) is a storefront philosopher, toiling every day at his lock-and- key business but consumed inside by memories of the great love he let slip through his fingers. "I need you, Clara," he writes in one of the many letters that shape the mood and story... That hope of love seems long in Manglehorn's past, but in this magical portrait of a surprising man, there is room for second chances.
"As it grows from its quiet character-study beginnings to engage bigger questions of love and human connection, Manglehorn finds moments of pure poetry. This humble locksmith's daydreams have a surreal quality. We see life through the lens of his experience, tinged by a hard-won wisdom that's equal parts pragmatism and whimsy."
