Full film details

Set in 1950s New York City, Tourette’s-afflicted private eye Lionel Essrog (Edward Norton) has always struggled with the erratic behaviour associated with the syndrome. When he meets fellow investigator Frank Minna (Bruce Willis), though, Lionel finally learns to take advantage of his irregular mind and use it as a strength.

However, upon discovering his only friend slumped and bleeding in an alleyway, too late to be saved, he soon finds himself all alone once more.

Armed with just a handful of clues, Lionel ventures out on his own to solve the mystery of Frank’s murder, desperate to find out what led to his mentor’s death.

Contending with everything from glittering halls and late-night jazz clubs through to the hard-edged urban slums, the investigator begins to unravel some of the city’s most closely guarded secrets. As the case takes Lionel into unchartered territory, he will stop at nothing to uncover the ominous truth.

Edward Norton (Isle of Dogs, Birdman, Keeping the Faith) directs and stars alongside Bruce Willis (Glass, Split, Looper), Willem Dafoe (Aquaman, At Eternity’s Gate, Murder on the Orient Express) and Alec Baldwin (The Public, Blind, It’s Complicated) in this mysterious crime drama based on Jonathan Lethem’s 1999 novel of the same name.
