Set against the backdrop of 1950s New York, Motherless Brooklyn follows Lionel Essrog (Edward Norton), a lonely private detective living with Tourette Syndrome, as he ventures to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend, Frank Minna (Bruce Willis). Armed only with a few clues and the engine of his obsessive mind, Lionel unravels closely-guarded secrets that hold the fate of the whole city in the balance. In a mystery that carries him from gin-soaked jazz clubs in Harlem to the hard-edged slums of Brooklyn and, finally, into the gilded halls of New York’s power brokers, Lionel contends with thugs, corruption and the most dangerous man in the city to honor his friend and save the woman who might be his own salvation.
Insider tip: “Edward Norton’s stylish and terrific 50’s New York noir is not only entertaining in the great gumshoe tradition, but highly resonant for today’s audiences” (Pete Hammond, Deadline Hollywood Daily). Rafer Guzman, Newsday, adds: “Motherless Brooklyn is a gorgeous-looking, beautifully acted film noir with a richly detailed script and sensitive direction from its star.” K. Austin Collins, Vanity Fair: “I miss this kind of story – told with jazz and intrigue, coal-black streets and smoky silhouettes – and Norton’s filmmaking evokes it tenderly.”
