description

Al Pacino delivers one of his most restrained and deeply soulful performances in Manglehorn. He plays a charmingly shaggy locksmith who spends his days tending shop, flirting with bank tellers and mourning the loss of woman from his past. David Gordon Green (JOE, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, ALL THE REAL GIRLS) proves once again that he has an unmatchable eye when it comes to soaking in and appreciating the world’s eccentrics, outcasts and lovable weirdoes. Combined with exemplary supporting turns from Holly Hunter and Chris Messina, MANGLEHORN is singular, heartfelt and just weird enough to be stuck in your mind long after the movie ends. Essential viewing for Harmony Korine's bonkers turn alone. We're talking early Danny McBride-esque, people!
