What are you doing this long, Labor Day weekend? Having a BBQ, marathoning some of Bill Hader‘s 200 movies every comedy writer should see, or perhaps you’re putting your feet up and taking a breather before school kicks in. Well, if you happen to be by a pool, perhaps you’ll relate to his new clip from “The Humbling,” premiering at the Venice Film Festival this week.
Barry Levinson directs this adaptation of Philip Roth‘s novel, in which Greta Gerwig and Al Pacino fall into an unlikely relationship. She’s a young woman, and he’s a suicidal actor, and as you might guess, their pairing is…unique. And as you see in this clip, this union is a life saving one, as Pacino watches the carefree Gerwig swim in the pool.
You’ll have our verdict from Venice soon, but until then, watch below.
