Gere knows how to hon­dle it

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

RICHARD Gere’s new film, Nor­man, which has just opened in the USA, sees him in the part of a small-time New York Jewish wheel­erdealer — or “a hondler”, as he de­scribed it to web­site Page Six. Along­side Gere in the epony­mous role of Nor­man Op­pen­heimer, Steve Buscemi plays a rabbi and Jewish ac­tor Hank Azaria a fel­low-huck­ster. Azaria said the char­ac­ters could have come straight out of Sholem Ale­ichem or Isaac Ba­she­vis Singer.
