Norman Oppenheimer (Richard Gere) is a small time operator who befriends a young politician at a low point in his life. Three years later, when the politician becomes an influential world leader, Norman’s life dramatically changes for better and worse. “Director Joseph Cedar impressively creates a complex and intricately detailed portrait of the web of political, financial, social and religious affiliations that has everything to do with how the world works.”—Hollywood Reporter. “It can take a TV series an entire season to establish a political intrigue as elaborate as the one Cedar devises here—and even longer to flesh out such a fascinating protagonist, when all Cedar had to do was give this archetype a name: Norman’—Variety. Also featuring Steve Buscemi. R.118 Min.
