Oscar nominee Edward Norton (Birdman, American History X, Primal Fear) directed, wrote, produced and stars in the atmospheric, 1950s set, neo-noir mystery MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN, alongside a cast that includes Bruce Willis, Willem Dafoe and Alec Baldwin.

Lionel Essrog (Edward Norton), a lonely private detective living with Tourette Syndrome, 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 New York 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.

The film’s journey to the screen began in 1999 when Norton saw the cinematic potential in Jonathan Lethem’s novel Motherless Brooklyn and its unforgettable central character. But from the beginning, Norton aimed to transpose Lethem’s contemporary characters into a different period and plot and give it a distinctive atmosphere by re-setting the drama in the 1950s—a time of great change in New York City. 

"the milieu and message of "Motherless Brooklyn" ring startlingly true, at a time when raw power, rank impunity and ruthless greed are as ascendant as ever." - WASHINGTON POST

"Motherless Brooklyn is a very smart movie, bristling with ideas about history, politics, art and urban planning." - NEW YORK TIMES

19/20 "Every now and then a film comes along where the care and craft combine to give it an instantly recognisable solidity and watchability." - FILMINK
