Scent of a Woman, starring Al Pacino and Chris O'Donnell, tells the story of a young prep school student, Charlie Simms (a fresh-faced Chris O’Donnell), who needs to make some cash for the holidays and agrees to be a caretaker to a blind, retired veteran, Lt. Col. Frank Slade (Al Pacino, who won an Oscar for his performance). On the job, Charlie visits White Plains, N.Y., with Frank and helps Frank by preventing his suicide attempt. He's there for Frank in a way others are not, which forms a unique bond between the two. And who could forget that epic tango performance at the restaurant?
The film, which grossed more than $136.1 million at the domestic box office (adjusted for inflation), was nominated for four Oscars, including best picture, and won three Golden Globes, including best motion picture in the drama category at the 1993 Golden Globes plus another for Pacino
