Director Barry Levinson reteams with actor Al Pacino in The Humbling, a black comedy about an aging actor. Pacino plays Simon Axler, a successful actor who, as the film opens, tumbles from the stage while performing Shakespeare. He's suffering from mental issues, having trouble differentiating between reality and fantasy, and he's decided to retire from the stage. Into his house moves Pegeen (Greta Gerwig), the daughter of Simon's old acting friends. She's had a crush on him since she was young, and soon the two develop a strange, dysfunctional relationship that draws the ire of her parents. Meanwhile, Simon's agent Charles Grodin tries to get him to work again. The Humbling screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
