A Hologram for the King

hologramforthekingWashed-up salesman Alan Clay (Tom Hanks) goes to Saudi Arabia to secure a major IT contract with the King, but runs into both practical and personal obstacles. Dave Eggersā€™s novel is a comment on life and realities after the Great Recession, but this film adaptation pays little interest in those themes, settling for well-staged but brief flashbacks to Clayā€™s life in the U.S. Relying almost entirely on Hanksā€™s winsome performance, the film follows his misadventures in the desert, attempt to rebuild his career and potential romance with a Saudi doctor (Sarita Choudhury). Slight, but done with a light touch.

2016-U.S.-Germany. 98 min. Color. Widescreen. Written and directed byĀ Tom Tykwer. Novel: Dave Eggers. Music: Johnny Klimek, Tom Tykwer. Cast: Tom Hanks (Alan Clay), Alexander Black (Yousef), Sarita Choudhury (Zahra), Sidse Babett Knudsen, Ben Whishaw, Tom Skerritt.
