Danny Collins

Al Pacino stars as an aging musician who has transitioned from Bob Dylan integrity to kitschy, burned-out pop star. When his manager (Christopher Plummer) stumbles across a long-lost, 40-year-old piece of fan mail from John Lennon himself, our hero decides it's time for some late-in-life redemption. He sets off on a cross-country road trip to reunite with the adult son (Bobby Cannavale) he fathered with a groupie, then holes up in suburban New Jersey hoping his songwriting muse will return. Pacino takes this assignment seriously, but writer-director Dan Fogelman (Cars, Bolt, Tangled) veers toward the sitcomish. 106 minutes R.
