Al Pacino playing an actor who is getting old and having a crisis. Huh. Let’s watch.
Pacino is reunited with director Barry Levinson for this one and the film is based on a book by Philip Roth. It seems that Pacino’s character has a breakdown and then falls in with a young lesbian and, well, things happen. It looks like Pacino may actually be acting in this and he’s surrounded by some good reliable character actors (including indie darling Greta Gerwig) so let’s file this under “cautiously optimistic”
_The Humbling_ comes out in January.
