The actor stars opposite Holly Hunter in the Worldview Entertainment film.

In David Gordon Green’s Manglehorn, Al Pacino plays an ex-con attempting to start over as a locksmith in a small town.

But as is often the case when criminals attempt to lie low, Manglehorn’s dark past is constantly in danger of being exposed. Co-starring Holly Hunter, the film is being produced and financed by Worldview Entertainment and is being sold at EFM by WestEnd Films.
