The Humbling

Elderly and addled actor Simon Axler (Al Pacino) spirals into depression and finds himself on the brink of suicide after he falls into the orchestra pit during a performance.

He enters into rehab and gets a new lease on life when he falls for a much younger former lesbian (Greta Gerwig), who's the daughter of one of his friends. However, her sexual history leaves him wondering if his feelings for her are valid.

Based on the novel by Philip Roth.
