Synopsis 3 stars out of 4 -- Hanks remains a great everyman, which means here he can be a wonderful outsider, a surrogate into our realizations or failures.It takes an actor with the finesse of Tom Hanks to turn a story of confusion, perplexity, frustration and panic into an agreeably uncomfortable comedy. But that’s what Mr. Hanks accomplishes in the German filmmaker Tom Tykwer’s easygoing screen adaptation...There's more than a faint echo of 'Death of a Salesman' in Hanks' 21st-century take on Willy Loman.It’s like an international-relations microcosm imagined by the Coen brothers, down to an occasional sense that the absurdity isn’t taking us anywhere.A HOLOGRAM FOR THE KING beguiles and even captivates, and after the dramatic exertions....It’s a relief to see Tykwer operating in a comparatively low-key, even minimalist mode.3 stars out of 5 -- Sarita Choudhury breathes life into blossoming romantic subplot which proves the film’s most intriguing feature.3 stars out of 5 -- Hanks is as watchable as ever....It’s a charming performance, and you root for Clay...Director Tom Tykwer adapts Dave Eggers' best-selling novel, in which an American businessman (Tom Hanks) travels to Saudi Arabia in an attempt to sell a holographic telecommunications system to the country's king. Desperate to make the deal in order to stay afloat in a failing economy, he learns to navigate this unfamiliar culture with the help of a taxi driver (Alexander Black) and a local doctor (Sarita Choudhury). Ben Whishaw co-stars.
