“Norman:The Moderate Rise & Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer” Film Review

norman_poster.jpgHe’s back,  Richard Gere, starring  as “Norman Oppenheimer”.

Norman , is an unrelenting New York, Jewish Fixer.  What is a fixer? The person who can get favors done through a network of influential people. How do you get those influential contacts? ACT ONE: Norman Oppenheimer reveals his persistent pursuit.  There is an ACT Two: and ACT Three  in the Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall.  We are captivated as we are moved by Norman’s trials and tribulations in each of  the ACT’s .

Richard Gere’s portral of Norman is compelling. Gere’s range of emotions, glides effortlessly  through the multidimensional character of Norman Oppenheimer. Gere, has sensitively developed Norman in a departure from any other part he has played in the past.

In Norman we see that this type of “Fixing” goes on in every level of Politics . It is in the  entertainment industry, the fashion industry, basically every business . Every business has an imprint of a “Norman the fixer”. Not to be confused with “Ray Donovan’s , “Fixer”.

Written and Directed by Academy Award nominee, Joseph Cedar. Starring Richard Gere, Lior Ashkenazi ( if you aren’t familiar with him , you will want to see more of him), Michael Sheen, Steve Buscemi, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Hank Azaria and Dan Stevens.
