A bold and moving film about homelessness. Richard Gere gives an unforgettable, emotional performance as George – whom we first meet sleeping in a bath in a derelict New York building, from which he is evicted.

We follow him as he tries to survive and eventually reconnect with humanity. Shot in a documentary-style with telephoto lenses by director Oren Moverman (Rampant ( 2011), The Messenger (2009), we know and learn nothing of George’s back-story about how he ended up homeless

Realistically grim and a perfect depiction of the invisibility and isolation of the homeless in society, this has been a very personal project for humanitarian and philanthropist Gere who has spent twelve years evolving and bringing the film to the screen
