Norman Oppenheimer (Richard Gere) lives a lonely life in the shadow of power and money, and constantly tries to make connections to put himself into a position of significance. One day, he befriends lowly Israeli politician Micha Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi), by buying him a pair of expensive shoes.

  • 5 stars "My wife, my two daughters and I had the fortunate opportunity of seeing the premiere on Friday night March 3rd at the Miami film festival. We had the fortunate opportunity to see him live on stage before the viewing of the movie. My wife Brenda Levine has followed his career for 40 years didn't understand the movie at the viewing but then understood it more after reading this article about the movie's plot. We did go to the after-party in the hopes of shaking his hand and meeting him. We were disappointed in that, but highly satisfied by the whole experience. My wife had an obstacle in getting there because she's handicapped. All in all it was fun and the movie was great we give it ten Stars and hope for a big success and it was very entertaining and Richard is still as handsome as he was in the movies, "Breathless" and "American Gigolo". It was an opportunity of a lifetime Bravo! Congratulations! The movie is a winner because both Richard Gere and Joseph Cedar are winners!"
