Scent of a Woman
is a 1992 movie which tells the story of a blind, retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade (Al Pacino
) and a Vermont boarding school student named Charlie Simms (Chris O'Donnell). Hired by the colonel's niece to help him while she and her husband and children get away for Thanksgiving, Charlie is told it will be an easy job. It isn't. The colonel, unbeknownst to his niece, is planning a trip to the Big Applesauce
and is dragging Charlie along with him. Hijinks and drama ensues as the Colonel is staring down his own dark path and past filled with many regrets and a young Charlie burdened by a choice lingering back at his school: To snitch on some students or not.
It is a remake
of a 1974 Italian movie about a blind Italian army colonel and a poor Sicilian.
