Synopsis


Scent of a Woman
Driven by an extravagant, tour-de-force performance by Al Pacino, Scent of a Woman is the story of Frank Slade (Pacino), a blind, retired army colonel who hires Charlie Simms (Chris O'Donnell), a poor college student on the verge of expulsion, to take care of him over Thanksgiving weekend. At the beginning of the weekend, Frank takes Charlie to New York, where he reveals to the student that he intends to visit his family, have a few terrific meals, sleep with a beautiful woman and, finally, commit suicide. The film follows the mis-matched pair over the course of the weekend, as they learn about life through their series of adventures. Though the story is a little contrived and predictable, it pulls all the right strings, thanks to O'Donnell's sympathetic supporting role and Pacino's powerful lead performance, for which he won his first Academy Award. Scent of a Woman is based on the 1975 Italian film Profumo Di Donna. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

    Al Pacino didn't win an oscar for this movie for nothing. It starts out a tad slow but gets better and better and the more you watch it, the better it gets. If anyone lives with a disability like I do, you can definitely relate to the character's emotions, frustrations, lonliness, and grit. The story is great, and the acting superb. Chris O'Donnell was great as well. Highly reommended. One of my top five all-time favorites.

    One of Pacino's best films. He plays a blind ex-military officer being "babysat" by a student needing money. The job turns out to be not what he expected. Great movie at a great price.

    The acting was great, but the storyline wasn't all that. I just don't get what all the hype was about in this movie. But I would recommend.

    this is a classic coming of age with a moral issue and an unlikely mentor who tangos on. Just a great movie.

    This movie is basically all Al Pacino's performance. There really isn't much else to talk about.
