The new film, DANNY COLLINS, is the sentimental story of an aging rock star who suffers a midlife crisis as a result of receiving a long-lost letter from John Lennon. Al Pacino stars as the jaded artist with mega costars Jennifer Garner, Annette Bening, and Christophe Plummer. But the genuine hero of the movie is John Lennon himself, whose presence is hauntingly tangible throughout the film as a result of the strategic use of many of his best songs. I saw DANNY COLLINS Friday night in a virtually empty theater, but almost no one left until the credits had finished and the house light went up. I guess we just wanted to linger a while in the afterglow of a really well made movie.

PS - the movie cost $10 million to make and has made $1.5 million so far...and, oh yeah, the performance of costar Bobby Cannavale as Pacino’s angry born-out-of-wedlock-one-night-stand son is worth the price of admission alone.
