Danny Collins tells the story of Danny Collins, an aging rocker played by aging actor Al Pacino. After basically giving up on the music business, Collins finds an undelivered letter to him from John Lennon, which sends him on a spiritual journey to rediscover his family, his love of music and women and all the boring shit these movies are filled with. As long as this movie wakes Pacino up and puts some fire in his belly for acting, then it has my vote.
