As much as Manglehorn (Pacino) claims not to like people, he leaves his mark on them. As a storefront philosopher, toiling every day at his lock-and-key business, he is consumed inside with memories of the great love he let slip away.

Growing from its quiet character-study beginnings to engage in bigger questions of love and human condition, the film finds moments of pure poetry, with Green weaving humour and insight together to guide Pacino to one of his strongest performances in years.

“Pacino performs miracles in David Gordon Green’s intimate character study.” Little White Lies
