Synopsis

Double bill of Al Pacino classics. 'Two For The Money' (2005) is a gambling drama starring Pacino and Matthew McConaughey. Pacino plays top sports better Walter Abrams, who grooms Brandon Lang (McConaughey) as his protege when Lang seems adept at picking consistent winners in the high-profile world of sports gambling. But with millions of dollars at stake, Lang enters into a deadly game of cat and mouse as various cons and tricks start to unravel, pitting him against his former mentor in a battle of wills. In 'Scent Of A Woman' (1992), hard-up student Charlie Simms (Chris O'Donnell) agrees to a job over Thanksgiving weekend to earn some much-needed cash. The job entails escorting blind, embittered ex-Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade (Pacino) on a trip to New York City. Slade plans to eat, drink, make merry and womanise - but unbeknown to Charlie, Slade is also intent on blowing his own brains out at the end of the excursion.
