Scent Of A Woman
Al Pacino delivers the performance of a lifetime in Scent of a Woman, the heart wrenching and heart-warming film that was nominated for 4 Academy Awards including Best Picture. Hoping to earn extra money over the Thanksgiving weekend, Charlie Simms (Chris O'Donnell), a scholarship student at an exclusive prep school, agrees to look after blind, retired Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade (Pacino). The innocent and reserved Simms is immediately thrown off guard by Slade's bullying personality. Charlie is in for even more surprises when Slade takes off for a wild weekend in New York City that will change the lives of both men forever. Pacino won his first Academy Award playing the bitter yet brilliant blind man whose self-destructive nature hides a deep concern for his young guardian, as well as an old-fashioned romantic flair that makes him one of the most endearing and unforgettable characters to ever grace the screen.
