About the Movie
Al Pacino stars as aging 1970s rocker Danny Collins, who can’t give up his hard-living ways. But when his manager (Christopher Plummer) uncovers a 40-year-old undelivered letter written to him by John Lennon, he decides to change course and embarks on a heartfelt journey to rediscover his family, find true love and begin a second act.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: So shameless is this movie's urge to batter you into laughter and tears that you give in, exhausted and maybe even a little grateful.
Fresh: Pacino's exuberance rescues Dan Fogelman's directing debut from the schematic snares in Fogelman's script.
Fresh: Legendary as Al Pacino's skills are, he wouldn't be the first actor I'd cast to play a 70ish pop star who still fills mid-sized arenas some 40 years after he last charted a hit single. Yet Al Pacino sells the heck out of his performance as Danny Collins.
Rotten: Pacino is good company, keeping his more mannered Pacinoisms in check, but none of it feels like a stretch for him.
Good guy, good movie.
Danny Collins was the most fabulous movie in years. Pacino was extraordinary. Heartwarming, clever, funny and just charming. Can't wait to own it. Will watch it over and over. The thoughts of it stayed with me for days. Rating from 1 to 10, it's a 15.
I saw this in a marathon week that included Spy, Jurassic World, and Mad Max: Fury Road.
All of the other movies are great, particularly Mad Max, but Danny Collins had that rare connection with me, one that the others just didn’t have. Pacino’s Danny is so desperate to liv the life he could have lived, and you can feel it seeping out of his soul.
By the end, in what is a truly moving final scene, you’re on the edge of your seat.
