Norman, lobbyist*/fixer** y...Epipen

 A man takes an EpiPen enclosed in a holder and tells a friend that he carries one with him for a peanut allergy, a man throws an EpiPen away, and a man eats two pieces of candy that look like medicine capsules. 

That’s all today from Dr Mac. But anaphylaxis neatly bookends writer/director Joseph Cedar’s delightful New York/Israeli co-production, telling about the life and times of Norman Oppenheimer (Richard Gere).

Don’t offer Norman a nut. It could kill him unless he immediately shoots up on his epinephrine pen.

But before that happens, we’d like to learn more about this charming, insistent arranger of meetings between important people, whose office is a leather shoulder bag and cellphone buds almost never out of his ears, who walks rather than takes a bus or cab, dines on pickled herring on a cracker and for most of the film wears a handsome greatcoat over a well-cut suit and a cloth cap.

(*) lobbyist a person who tries to influence legislation on behalf of a special interest;

(**) fixer a person who uses influence or makes arrangements for another, especially by improper or unlawful means.
