AJ Manglehorn is an growing old, extraordinary man in a small city. He nurses his sick cat, squeezes out a dialog with the native financial institution teller each Friday, and eats on the similar place every single day. However there’s extra to Manglehorn than meets the attention: he’s an ex-con who, 40 years in the past, gave up the girl of his goals for an enormous ‘job’. He now obsesses each day over the alternatives he made. After a dramatic effort to begin over, Manglehorn faces a terrifying second and is unmasked as a man with a really, very darkish previous.
