Arriving on digital platforms on 12th September and on Blu-ray and DVD from 19th September, 2016 courtesy of Icon Film Distribution, A HOLOGRAM FOR THE KING sees Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (Bridge Of Spies, Inferno, Sully) as a desperate man searching for a way to get his life together in a strange and foreign land.
Following a divorce which also included the loss of his house, Alan Clay (Hanks) is sent on a business trip to Saudi Arabia where he hopes to sell a state-of- the-art 3D holographic meeting system to the nation’s King. Desperate for the deal to go through without a hitch, Alan quickly learns that he will have to adapt to a different culture and way of doing business in order to be successful. Baffled by local customs and stymied by an opaque bureaucracy however, he quickly discovers that things are going to be harder than he even expected.
After suffering a panic attack in his hotel room, Alan meets a beautiful Saudi doctor (Sarita Choudhury, Homeland) whose presence has a profound effect on his mood and view on life, leading him to question the path he has taken. Aided by wise-cracking taxi driver (newcomer Alexander Black) who shows him how best to adapt to the Saudi culture, Alan's story helps show that sometimes you have to change your scenery to change your life.
