Today I still have many goals I want to accomplish and relationships with family, friends and clients that require persistence, perseverance and indestructible optimism. Thankfully I continue to discover new cinematic role models to show me the way!
Danny Collins (2015)
The comedy drama, Danny Collins, is about an aging 1970’s rock star named Danny Collins (Al Pacino) living an unhappy, destructive life despite his fame and wealth. When he receives a 40-year-old undelivered letter written to him by John Lennon he is motivated to make changes and connect with a grown son he’s never met. This fantastic movie of redemption features truly amazing, witty dialogue and performances from the entire cast that include Annette Bening, Bobby Cannavale, Jennifer Garner, Christopher Plummer and little Giselle Eisenberg as Hope.
