Norman Oppenheimer (Gere) lives a lonely life in the margins of New York City power and money, a would-be operator dreaming up financial schemes that never come to fruition. As he has nothing real to offer, Norman strives to be everyone’s friend, but his incessant networking leads him nowhere. Always on the lookout for someone willing to pay attention to him, Norman sets his sights on Micha Eshel, a charismatic Israeli politician alone in New York at a low point in his career. Sensing Eshel’s vulnerability, Norman reaches out with a gift. When Eshel becomes Prime Minister three years later, he remembers this kind gesture. With his very real connection to the leader of a major nation, Norman is awash in the respect he has always craved. Flush with his newfound feeling of success, Norman attempts to use Eshel’s name to leverage his biggest deal ever. However, his plans soon go awry, creating the potential for an international catastrophe.

“A marvel of wit and off-kilter humanity.  Mr. Gere has never been better.” – A.O. Scott, NY Times

"Gere revels in the nuances of the role; in its attention to both detail and larger affect, this really is one of his finest performances ..." -Ty Burr, Boston Globenorman2
