Happy Thursday MMT Family!  Question – if you could receive a letter from any artist/musician, who would it be and what could it say that would significantly impact your life? I’m surmising this with inspiration from the new film DANNY COLLINS, starring Al Pacino and Christopher Plummer.  In the film, the lead character Collins (Pacino) receives a decades old letter, written by John Lennon, and it changes the course of his life.

The film opened in select theaters last week, is opening in several more areas tomorrow March 27, and will open nationwide on April 10. You can read the synopsis and watch the trailer below, and get additional information about the film at the official website here.

Stop back by and share a thought or two when you see the film!  PS – my letter would be from Lenny Kravitz and it would be the proposal of course! 😉

Until next thought, Thomasena


Inspired by a true story and featuring songs by John Lennon, DANNY COLLINS is about aging 1970s rocker Danny Collins (Al Pacino), who can’t give up his hard-living ways. But when his manager (Christopher Plummer) uncovers a 40 year-old undelivered letter written to him by John Lennon, he decides to change course and embarks on a heartfelt journey to rediscover his family, find true love and begin a second act.
