Tapping into the nuance of his early roles (1973’s Scarecrow comes to mind), Al Pacino gives his best performance in years in this quiet, homespun character study from acclaimed and versatile director David Gordon Green (George Washington, Pineapple Express). Angelo Manglehorn lives a small life as a locksmith in Sunset Valley, Texas, emotionally distant from everybody and everything except for his cat Fanny, his granddaughter Kylie, and Dawn (Holly Hunter), a sweet bank teller he visits every Friday. Intentionally estranged from his commodities trader son (Chris Messina, “The Mindy Project”), he spends much of his time writing letters to Clara, a former love who “got away,” hoping that one day they can sail away together on his old boat. But the letters return unopened on a daily basis, adding more and more piles to a makeshift shrine in his basement. Can Manglehorn pull himself out of his curmudgeonly ways so late in his life, find his way back into the good graces of his community, and unlock Dawn’s heart? Green and longtime cinematography collaborator Tim Orr lend Paul Logan’s script a handsome visual style bursting with neon colors and carefully calibrated character moments, enhancing the oft-surreal but always-grounded story.
