Al Pacino shows up in two big festival films this year: David Gordon Green’s Manglehorn, and The Humbling from Barry Levinson. Here’s a first The Humbling trailer, in which Pacino plays an aging actor who embarks upon an affair with a younger woman (Greta Gerwig) after he has a minor breakdown. OK, maybe not such a minor one.
If that sounds like it should really be Woody Allen material, keep in mind that the film is an adaptation of the novel by Philip Roth, who could almost be considered Allen’s literary twin.
