“Gere delivers one of the most impressive and nuanced performances of his career.” — Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

“Compulsively watchable…a spellbinder that features Richard Gere in one of his best performances ever.” — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Richard Gere teams up with director Cedar (Oscar-nominated FOOTNOTE) for a bravura performance as Norman Oppenheimer, a slippery, smalltime New York hustler whose sleight-of-hand skills as a social climber bring him into the precarious proximity to power. Gere has never been better in conjuring up the energy and complexity of a character so ingratiatingly magnetic and yet so pitiable in his hubris. An obnoxiously charming streetwise loner with a graying air of threadbare respectability, Norman is a “fixer” who works nebulous deals, drops names, and shuffles imagined connections to the movers and shakers. An impulsive and extravagant favor for a low-level politician visiting New York would seem to promise a payoff in spades three years later when the man is elected Israeli prime minister. DCP digital.
