Baffled by local customs and stymied by an opaque bureaucracy, he eventually finds his footing with the help of a wise- cracking taxi driver (Alexander Black) and a beautiful Saudi doctor (Sarita Choudhury).

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: A Hologram for the King amiably ambles through a narrative desert, saved by an oasis of a performance from the ever-dependable Tom Hanks.
Book-based Hanks drama has drinking, sex; lacks a point.
