Story


Academy Award winner Al Pacino gives a wondrous performance as a lonely locksmith whose life is transformed by a new romance in this magical love story from acclaimed director David Gordon Green (Joe, All the Real Girls). A.J. Manglehorn (Pacino) is a reclusive Texas key-maker who spends his days caring for his cat, finding comfort in his work and lamenting a long-lost love. Enter kindhearted bank teller Dawn (Holly Hunter), whose interest in the eccentric Manglehorn may just be able to draw him out of his shell. Chris Messina costars in this remarkably rich and humorous tale of second chances.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..personality-wise, this pic feels as scruffy and disheveled as its subject..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..director David Gordon Green takes his time telling us all this. The week or so covered in the film can feel like it's chronicled in real time. And there's an unexplored, unnecessary subplot..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]
“..a dull, pretentious trifle from director David Gordon Green with Al Pacino in another of his late-career mishaps that does nothing to elevate his fading film status..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
