Left heartbroken by the woman he loved and lost many years ago, Manglehorn, an eccentric small-town locksmith, tries to start his life over again with the help of a new friend.

The critical consensus

Holly Hunter goes toe-to-toe nicely with the superbly understated Al Pacino loner obsessed with a long-lost love — one of his most rewarding outings in a very long time.

In a film that’s a marked improvement on some of his other recent releases, Pacino plays a locksmith trudging mournfully through an America he no longer understands.

If the symbolism feels a bit too on the nose here, Green compensates by giving Pacino the space to create a recognisably flawed human being whose foibles he captures on screen with unsparing honesty, but also real tenderness.

Al Pacino in an unexpectedly restrained groove.

Pacino – with waistcoat, fob watch and greasy hair – is the pining ex-coach at the heart of David Gordon Green’s gentle small-town drama.

Date-night is the best scene in the movie and Al is mesmerising, but he and Holly could have done so much more, had more been available.
