Story : Danny Collins (Pacino) is a loaded rock star who is addicted to the lifestyle that comes with it. He hasn't penned an original song in decades but keeps the cash rolling in by touring and relying on his old hits. He's got the trophy wife too, half his age. He is stunned one night when his faithful manager Frank (Plummer) gives him a letter that Beatles icon John Lennon wrote to him 40 years ago. Danny has an epiphany after reading it and decides to seek meaning in his life again.

Review : In undoubtedly his best performance in years, Al Pacino has taken this story - inspired by the true tale of folk singer Steve Tilston who received a letter from Lennon that wasn't delivered for decades - and elevated it to a whole different level altogether.

Danny is a booze-addled, drug-fuelled singer who worships Lennon. However, he does not have the ability that his idol had, to keep the hit songs coming consistently. Instead, he's stuck in a rut of debauchery - a comfort zone that's like a gilded cage complete with whiskey, women and hangovers the next morning.

But when Danny holds the above-mentioned letter in his hands for the first time and absorbs its seemingly simple yet profound message, the fog in his mind clears up and he gets clarity about what his priorities in life should actually be.

The very next morning, he checks in at a Hilton in New Jersey and goes to patch up with his son Tom (Cannavale), born out of a one-night stand in the 70s. Tom now has a wife named Samantha (Garner) and an extremely talkative little daughter. Cannavale's act as the son who's angry and has abandonment issues does go a little overboard at times, but his character is essentially Danny's moral compass. Garner plays a doting wife with ease but of course, this one is Al Pacino all the way - his panache, style, energy and fluidity will move and delight you. And hey, you get to hear him croon as well. What's not to like?
