Description

Norman Oppenheimer is a fixer and a schemer, a man seeking connections who is able to ingratiate himself almost instantly with anyone. If he determines you’re worth knowing, he’ll introduce you to someone else powerful, and maybe someday you’ll do him a favor. Now in his 60s, a lifetime of fixing has left him without any meaningful income, not to mention much of anything to be proud of. But when one of his contacts surprisingly becomes the Prime Minister of Israel, suddenly Norman has an actual contact that could bring him some money, some power, and maybe even some respect. Norman’s brief and modest rise gives way to a sudden and excruciating fall when his blundering ways put him in the cross-hairs of the Israeli justice system. Joseph Cedar’s brilliant and dark comedy features a stunning performance by Richard Gere, who has been called “fascinating onscreen from beginning to end.” - Hollywood Reporter
