Synopsis:
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.

Slow, dull but oddly watchable! - Norman review by Peachy

Spoiler Alert

It was hard to know what to make of this film. The plot was obviously going only one direction. Richard Gere worked hard to perform a character that repeated the same gestures and movement.

I thought there might be more to this, but there wasn't!

No wonder it only lasted a week at the cinema

. Teious, boring and meandering and Richard Gere was not on form or may be it was the script.
