Norman Oppenheimer (Richard 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 (Lior Ashkenazi), 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 of a very expensive pair of shoes, a gesture that deeply touches Eshel. When Eshel becomes Prime Minister three years later, he remembers. 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. Norman's kaleidoscopic plans soon go awry, creating the potential for an international catastrophe he must struggle to prevent.

Veteran sex symbol goes schlubby with tale of a modern 'macher' in over his head – and delivers one of his best performances to date.

Cedar clearly wants ‘Norman’ to be more than just an entertaining web of character interaction. There are obvious points about Israeli politics that are actually just as relevan...
