Aging pop star Danny Collins (Al Pacino, in loveable scamp mode) can’t give up his hard-living ways. But when his manager (Christopher Plummer) uncovers a forty-year-old undelivered letter written to him by John Lennon, he decides to change course and embark on a heartfelt journey to rediscover his family, find true love and begin a second act. This is an irresistibly appealing comedy/drama with an unabashed streak of sentimentality, sharp dialogue, and a superb ensemble cast.
By the way, Danny Collins is inspired by the true story of Steve Tilston, a British musician who received a 1971 letter from John Lennon some 30 years after it was written. The gist of the letter was about the same, but all the characters and circumstances are creations of the filmmakers.
“This hilarious and heartfelt movie is an exuberant gift.” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone)
