Critics are raving about Richard Gere’s performance in this moral tale, calling it his best work in years. He plays a New York wheeler-dealer – the guy who always knows the right people and can get things done. When an Israeli dignitary comes to the city, Norman befriends him, believing they have a strong connection. Norman begins to rise in esteem within the Jewish community. But when the politician is elected Israeli prime minister Norman’s access is cut off. “...has the old-world feel of a Jewish folktale” – Chicago Reader.
