After becoming one of the biggest A-list stars of the late ’90s and 2000s, Edward Norton kind of stepped back from the spotlight over the past decade or so. Whether that is by choice or not remains to be seen, but this year he is staging a comeback with only his second film as a director. Motherless Brooklyn is an adaptation of a Jonathan Lethem novel and it finds Norton playing a private investigator with Tourette syndrome trying to solve a murder. Although the book took place in 1999, the movie transplants the story to 1950s New York and early reviews coming out of Telluride are praising the cast while questioning the film’s length and confusing plot. Motherless Brooklyn co-stars Bruce Willis, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Bobby Cannavale, Cherry Jones, Alec Baldwin, Willem Dafoe, Michael K. Williams, Leslie Mann and Ethan Suplee and it hits theatres on Nov. 1st. Check out the trailer below and see what you make of it.
