"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

Norman Oppenheimer (Richard Gere) lives a lonely life in the margins of New York City power and money, a would-be operator incessantly networking and dreaming up financial schemes that never come to fruition. When he meets Micha Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi), a charismatic Israeli politician, Norman reaches out with a gift of a very expensive pair of shoes, a gesture that Eshel remembers when he becomes Prime Minister three years later. Joseph Cedar (FOOTNOTE) has crafted a painfully funny look at the schmoozer we all know. With Steve Buscemi, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Hank Azaria. (U.S.-Israel, 2016, 118m, Sony Classics)
