"We’re in a cut-throat world of politics and schmoozing but the wistful music and playful chapter titles give the film the feel of a folk tale or of a slightly darker version of a Woody Allen comedy."
★★★★
-Geoffrey Macnab, Independent

"It’s like an Arthur Miller play gone large-screen, complete with act divisions, and Israeli writer-director Joseph Cedar’s script has a Miller-worthy density of moral wit."
★★★★
-Nigel Andrews, Financial Times

"Norman is an example of that increasingly rare thing: an adult-orientated drama without shock material, dripping with warmth and surprise turns."
★★★★
-Andrew Lowry, Empire

"Gere, his Cheshire-cat smile only improving with age, has found his most essential role, one that pushes his smooth operator’s desperation to the limit."
★★★★
-Joshua Rothkof, Time Out


Norman (Richard Gere), a New York fixer, knows the right people and can get things done. When an Israeli dignitary named Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi) comes to the city, Norman decides to impress the man by buying him some very expensive shoes. It works and he establishes a strong connection to the man, but a few years later, when Eshel becomes the Israel prime minister, Norman can’t communicate with him anymore, and this threatens to destroy his reputation.
