Al Pacino and Chris O'Donnell are the unlikeliest of duos in this powerful and moving Pacino vehicle that - at last - landed him a best-actor Oscar. Pacino is Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade, a blind, hard drinking, nearly insane and always over-the-top man who has issues… loads and loads of issues. O'Donnell is Charlie, a young student hired to look after the retired military man for a weekend. In a sub-plot, Charlie is to undergo a disciplinary hearing at the prestigious Baird School scheduled for the following week, and after a weekend in New York City (that includes adventure, laughs, a wonderful tango between Pacino and Gabrielle Anwar, plus the shocking revelation of Slade's real motives for visiting the Big Apple), they return to the Baird school where Slade represents Charlie in a rousing, crowd-pleasing showdown. Scent of a Woman, based on the 1972 Italian feature Profumo di donna, is stellar entertainment with great performances all around.

Synopsis

A young and innocent scholarship student at an exclusive prep school in New Hampshire agrees to look after a blind retired Army officer to earn extra money over the Thanksgiving holiday. The lieutenant colonel takes him on an eye-opening trip to Manhattan and befriends him when he gets into some trouble at school.

Description

Hoping to earn some extra money, a relatively underprivileged prep school student agrees to look after a cantankerous, blind, retired lieutenant Colonel during his holiday. Thrown off guard by his charge's bullying style, the student's in for even more surprises when the two take off for a wild weekend in New York City. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best (Adapted) Screenplay. Academy Awards: Best Actor--Al Pacino.

Notes

Filmed in New York City and at Kaufman Astoria Studios, Queens, using a widescreen process. Bo Goldman's screenplay was suggested by a character in "Profuma di Donna", an Italian film written by Ruggero Maccari and directed by Dino Risi. "Profuma" was based on the novel "Il Buio e il Miele" by Giovanni Arpino.
