Gere’s performance… is warm, aggravating, moving, and laugh-out-loud funny. Only an actor this lively and inherently charming would understand the perils of coming off as too lively and too ingratiating; every encounter Norman has feels a little off, his behavior always edging into too-muchness. Yet how beautifully and funnily Gere realizes the character’s awkwardness! The longer you spend with Norman, the more you love him, the more you appreciate his generosity and curiosity.
