What you may need to know:

1. An aging actor loses his skills and his desire to perform and attempts suicide. He later begins an affair with a much younger lesbian which sparks passion into his life once again.

2. The movie is adapted from Philip Roth’s steamy novel of the same name . Al Pacino bought the rights in 2009. The sly dog.

3. As a novel it didn’t garner great review with the Guardian reviewer saying  busy Roth needed to “be slowing down a little. And perhaps should be getting out of the house a bit more.”

4. It was a very depressing book, the trailer seems to have a few laughs though.

5. The great Barry Levinson is directing. I suppose we can forgive him Sphere (1998) after all. Just.

6. Greta Gerwig is apparently  producing and writing the How I met Your Mother spin-off. entitled How I Met Your Dad.

7. Broadsheet Prognosis: More humbling, less fumbling please.

Release Date: TBC

    Does Greta’s character steal a married man in the film? I wonder if she is as dedicated as Daniel Day Lewis, that would explain why she did it in real life: preparation for the role.

      an affair with a lesbian. who, from the trailer, is either a psychopath, or “turns” for his manly charms.

      great. just……………..great.

      ugh.

    Just a quick question. I may have already missed it, but can I assume that these trailer park things are sponsored adverts?

    Sphere! I really liked that Film, I had read the book too, and the film is faitful to the book, but I guess some people didnt like either…

      I liked the book. Hated the film. He failed to match the suspense that Crichton generated with what was a very thin plot. IMO
