Reclusive small town locksmith Angelo Manglehorn has never quite recovered from losing the love of his life, Clara. Fixated on her memory, he feels closer to his beloved cat than the people around him and prefers to find comfort in his work and daily routine. Still, he forges on with his tenuous human connections, maintaining intermittent contact with his son, taking misplaced pride in a former protégé gone astray, and establishing a cautious friendship with a kindhearted woman from the local bank. As this solitary man approaches the possibility of new love, he finds himself at a crossroads between remaining consumed by the past and embracing the present. Manglehorn is a movingly humanistic portrait of a man rendered with unsentimental simplicity and idiosyncratic humor.

Director’s Statement
Manglehorn is about a guy who gave up the love of his life and now he regrets it as the world kind of crumbles in front of him. It’s a love story. It’s about the choices you make in your youth and how that reflects the situations you set up for yourself later in life. It’s about the guy who doesn’t want to end up sitting home alone at the dinner table talking to his pet cat. I do think there is a beautiful humor in this. Above and beyond any narrative concept, it’s Al Pacino and his exploration of a character trying to put his pieces together in the most intimate sense.
