Movie Info

Oren Moverman's drama Time out of Mind stars Richard Gere as George, a homeless, mentally-ill man who has been unable to hold a job for years. He drifts through the city looking for food, alcohol, and shelter. He also tries to make contact with his estranged daughter (Jena Malone). Eventually George takes advantage of some of the social services provided by the city of New York, but he lacks the proper paperwork to get the financial assistance he needs. He befriends a fellow homeless man (Ben Vereen) who claims to have been a successful jazz musician. Time Out of Mind screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

  • Rejoice, fans of silver foxes and Eighties love-gods. A week after Richard Gere scorched the screen as a billionaire morphine addict in The Benefactor, he's back, and this time he's on camera for nearly every frame.

  • It peters out on the home stretch, but there's so much here that's impressive.

    Mar 3, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Director Oren Moverman doesn't seem all that interested in the grimy horror of homelessness except insofar as it gives him an opportunity to show Gere in the midst of an identity crisis: who am I, and how do I fit into the world?

  • "Time Out of Mind" is consciously disoriented and slow, to its own ultimate detriment.

  • Richard Gere stars as an elderly man forced out on the streets of New York City. There isn't much more to the story than that, but for the talented writer-director Oren Moverman it's more than enough.

    A fantastic performance from Richard Gere. This shows just how harrowing and depressing life can get if you are homeless. Riveting and slightly repulsive at the same time.
