Elevator Pitch The film subtitle is, “The moderate rise and tragic fall of a New York fixer”. So Norman is constantly on the phone to people and accosting them in the street, at conferences and at parties, attempting to put people together in a way which will result in an earner of some sort. Due to a chance meeting (more or less) he begins to be able to put together a dream circle of favours, but check out the subtitle
Content Mostly Norman wandering about in the street in his camel hair overcoat phoning people, with occasional slightly embarrassing face to face meetings, as he claims to be a friend of a friend, or that his wife now dead, knew someone and so on.
A View Very slow moving, and probably works better if you have a knowledge of American business practices, and maybe Hebrew since some of it is in that language. Honestly, I wished we had gone to see something else.
