Norman (2016) (HNR)
Release Date: July 18, 2017.
"One of Richard Gere's best performances ever."
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
Norman Oppenheimer (Richard Gere) lives a lonely life in the margins of New York City power and money, and strives to be everyone's friend. His incessant networking leads him nowhere until he ends up befriending a young but charismatic politician, Micha Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi), at a low point in his life. Three years later, the politician becomes the Prime Minister of Israel. Norman uses Eshel's name to leverage his biggest deal ever: a series of quid pro quo transactions linking the Prime Minister to Norman's nephew (Michael Sheen), a rabbi (Steve Buscemi), a mogul (Harris Yulin), his assistant (Dan Stevens) and a treasury official from the Ivory Coast. Norman's plans soon go awry, creating the potential for an international catastrophe he must struggle to prevent. Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer is a comedic and compassionate drama of a man whose downfall is rooted in a human frailty all too easy to forgive - a need to matter. -- (C) Sony Pictures, 2016, Israel/USA.
