BUEI & Bermuda Docs present: A Hologram for the King – UK/France/Germany/US – 97 minutes – Rated: R (US)

May 15, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:45 pm

Hologram

Tom Hanks stars in this comedic drama about a freshly divorced American businessman who arrives in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to close what he hopes will be the deal of a lifetime. His mission: sell a state-of-the-art holographic teleconferencing system to the Saudi government. Hanks, who won Best Actor Academy Awards ® for his roles in Philadelphia and Forrest Gump, is baffled by local customs and stymied by an opaque bureaucracy — but he eventually finds his footing with the help of a wise-cracking taxi driver (Alexander Black) and a beautiful Saudi doctor (Sarita Choudhury). Written and directed by Tom Tykwer, the film is based on Dave Eggers’ novel of the same name.
