Richard Gere stars as a relentless Jewish-American macher in Joseph Cedar’s (BeaufortFootnote) first English-speaking film. When Norman meets charismatic Israeli politician Micha Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi), he does everything he can to get closer to him. Three years later – Eshel now the Prime Minister of Israel – their once mutually beneficial friendship threatens to ruin them both. Exposing the networks of fixers and middlemen that are weaved around powerful men, Norman is a modern cautionary tale with the seductive, funny charm of a traditional Jewish folktale.
