Al Pacino stars as aging 1970s rocker Danny Collins, who can’t give up his hard-living ways.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Danny Collins, though it has its share of humor, also deals with some pretty serious/heavy themes, including a father's abandonment of his son, a potentially terminal illness, infidelity, an identity crisis, and one man's reckoning of the professional and personal decisions that have affected the course of his life. There's also some innuendo and nudity -- a woman is shown in the bathroom, breasts bared and pubic area covered in shaving cream -- and scenes of adult drinking and drug use (in one scene, a child wanders in right after someone snorts a line of cocaine). Frequent but not constant strong language includes "s--t"and "f--k."
