(OPENING NIGHT FILM) NORMAN: THE MODERATE RISE AND TRAGIC FALL OF A NEW YORK FIXER

FLORIDA PREMIERE

DIRECTED BY Joseph Cedar

Country: Israel, USA

Language: English, Hebrew
Subtitles: English
Running Time: 117min

Film Year: 2016
Category: Special Events
Norman (Richard Gere) is a fixer. He lives to connect people. He always claims to “know a guy.” He ingratiates. Sometimes he irritates.
When Israeli Foreign Minister Eshel visits New York, Norman buys him outrageously expensive shoes and cements a gold-star connection. When Eshel later becomes Israel’s Prime Minister a scandal develops, and Norman, accustomed to flailing on high society’s periphery, suddenly finds himself precariously occupying its center.

Writer-director Joseph Cedar, whose Beaufort and Footnote garnered Oscar nods, has crafts a mysterious character study while brilliantly capturing a cloistered milieu. Norman’s astonishing cast includes Michael Sheen, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Steve Buscemi, but it’s Gere, never better, who draws us close and keeps us guessing.
This film is also featured in the 2017 Film Festival’s CineDwnTwn Galas Film Category.
