Persistent wheeler-dealer Norman (Richard Gere) falls in with an Israeli politician (Lior Ashkenazi) on the rise. When the politician is elected prime minister, Norman rises in esteem with the New York Jewish community, even though his social connections might only be a sham.

All Critics (110) | Top Critics (28)

Gere, who somehow seems to make himself physically smaller here, creates a character both infuriating and endearing.

May 10, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

"Norman" is a small character study of a classic wannabe - think "The King of Comedy," set in the world of Jewish politics - and when it gets bogged down in international intrigue it loses its way.

Norman may be a mere wannabe, but "Norman" is a small gem.

May 4, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Is Norman a macher, a schnorrer or a mensch? Thanks to the filmmaker's sensitive touch and Gere's sympathetic performance, he gets to be all three. And that calls for mazel tovs all around.

Gere delightfully soft-shoes his way through Norman, surfacing the character's loneliness without unduly exploiting it.

April 28, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Gere ... deserves to be remembered at awards time.
