Review.

There’s the presence of Tom Hanks in the lead role, and the fact that it’s based on a Dave Eggers novel—both Hanks and Eggers have their faithful legions—and then there’s that curious title that A Hologram for the King is a 2016 film about a sales rep who goes on a business trip to Saudi Arabia. Unfortunately, things don’t go his way. Despite having issues with jet leg, failed meetings with the monarch, and his own health, Alan grasps this new world of culture. A Hologram for the King is one of the most underrated films of Tom Hanks
