Al Pacino arrived at the Virgin Mobile and Ketel One sponsored after-party for his TIFF film The Humbling, based on the novel by Philip Roth, to rain. Not of the cumulonimbus variety, but a shower of posters and other promotional detritus that fans had brought for him to sign. The onslaught was so severe that his bodyguards had to shield him from the crowd and usher him inside the Storys building on Duncan Street (where costar Greta Gerwig had just finished dining with director and partner Noah Baumbach). Pacino’s partner Lucila Sola floated throughout the party in a flowing, floor length gown. Pacino opted to stay put, crammed into a second floor booth with friends, under the watchful eye of two bodyguards. They didn’t linger for very long—Pacino was hungry, we hear. Apparently, he wanted to go “anywhere he could walk,” but his security detail put the kibosh on an amble to Momofuku and he, along with Sola, piled into an SUV en route to Blowfish. Once safely out of earshot, we heard more than one guest do their best Scent of a Woman “hoo-ha!”
