‘The Humbling’ Premiere w. Al Pacino

Pacino-4Pacino-1Pacino-3 Pacino-2I was so lucky to have the chance to see Al Pacino’s new tragicomedy ‘The Humbling’ last night at the North American premiere in Toronto at The Elgin Theatre. The film is quite possibly Pacino’s best performance since Scarface. He plays an aging actor who loses his passion for his craft and his mind and sense of self along with it. Embarking upon a romance with his young and starstruck lesbian goddaughter (Greta Gerwig) things turn surreal, hilarious and heartbreakingly sad. ‘The Humbling’ is Barry Levinson’s adaptation of the Phillip Roth novel by the same name. It had me laughing and crying the whole way through. Check out the trailer below. xo
