Richard Gere is one of the feature actors of the movie "Franny" which was shown at the Tribeca Film Festival and deemed so impressive by Samuel Goldwyn Films that they chose it for U.S. distribution. Rumours abound that part of the reason the film was chosen for U.S. distribution was the performance of Richard Gere who plays a rich, eccentric philanthropist with hedonistic tendencies who finds a way to get involved in the life of his late friend's daughter played by Dakota Fanning and her husband played by Theo James in an attempt to relive his own past.
Some entertainment observers are comparing his performance to that of his sensational 'villain' performance in the 1990 movie "Internal Affairs" and feel that it could be the role that returns him to prominence as a feature actor in 2015. No one will question that he is one of the great actors in Hollywood but it has been several years since he provided a spellbinding performance that left fans, entertainment observers and filmmakers talking about how he captivated audiences with his acting range and presence on-screen.
However, his performance in "Franny" according to some of the people who viewed the film was captivating and has some entertainment insiders anticipating that once this film is released throughout the United States it will result in filmmakers targeting him for feature roles in their projects.
His performance in "Franny" has entertainment insiders fascinated with his return to providing exceptional scene-winning performances to the point that some are looking at it as one of the most impressive performances of the year from a Hollywood superstar and has pushed him back into the spotlight for something other than his divorce from wife Carey Lowell.
