The 2016 comedy-drama A Hologram for the King releases on DVD Tuesday. It stars Tom Hanks as a washed-up corporate business man who finds a new lease on life in Saudi Arabia while trying to sell a high-tech teleconferencing system to an Arab King. Film critic Walter Metz takes a closer look for this edition of SIU Reviews.
