Brief synopsis

Als sich in einer amerikanischen Kleinstadt seltsame Todesfälle häufen, wird der entspannte Loser Frank erster städtischer Bote schlechter Nachrichten. In „The Middle Man“ wirft Regisseur Bent Hamer einen ironischen Blick auf Trumps Amerika von heute, wie gewohnt düster aber humorvoll und mit einem Schuss Liebe und einer Prise Humor.
