The Humbling (Directed by: Barry Levinson; Written by: Buck Henry, Michal Zebede, and Philip Roth)

An aged and finished actor has his world turned upside down after he embarks on an affair with a lesbian.

Starring: Al Pacino, Greta Gerwig, Nina Arianda, Dylan Baker, Billy Porter, Kyra Sedgwick, Dianne Wiest, Li Jun Li, Derrick Arthur, Steve Rosen

My thoughts on this film: My first thought was to compare it with the currently Oscar-winner Birdman, since the plot seems to be going in the same direction: a washed-up actor who wants to salvage his career. However, this seems to be better written, with a better cast, and therefore better acting.
Having said all this, I would not go as far as calling it a comedy. A comedy should be aiming up and carrying on through the entire movie. This just feels like something you would watch to pass the time, with a few laughs now and then, bordering on 'pathetic' at times.
If you go and see it, expect to find something fun to watch but nothing extraordinary!
