The Humbling

Among Barry Levinson’s filmography, which includes movies such as Rain Man and Wag The Dog, is the 2010 HBO feature You Don’t Know Jack, which explored the life of Jack Kevorkian, and featured Al Pacino in the lead role. In his first movie since 2012, Levinson once again works with Pacino, this time on an adaptation of a Philip Roth novel. Titled The Humbling, the movie sees Pacino play a washed-up actor who becomes suicidal, leading to a stay at a facility where he strikes up a relationship with a younger woman, played by Greta Gerwig. Dianne Wiest, Dan Hedaya, and Charles Grodin also star in the feature, and a new trailer has now been released ahead of the film’s North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. A public release date for the film, which is co-written by Levinson and Buck Henry, has not been announced. The trailer, which provides a better idea of the tone of the film, can be seen below.
