Motherless Brooklyn

Lionel Essrog (Edward Norton) does not have it easy: as an orphan he grew up in a home, other children often teased him for his strange tics. Even as an adult, Tourette syndrome does not make it easy for him in everyday life. Only Frank Minna (Bruce Willis) seems to see a talent in his handicap that is hidden from many others and takes him on in his private detective agency.
When Lionel and his colleagues, the so-called Minna Men, are supposed to watch Frank at a meeting, the situation gets out of control and Frank is shot. None of the Minna Men knows exactly what kind of case Frank was working on, but Lionel suspects a big conspiracy.
Initially often underestimated by his counterpart, he undertakes initial surveys. He speaks to local troublemaker Paul (Willem Dafoe), community activist Laura-Rose (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) and ultimately messes with unscrupulous politician Moses Randolph (Alex Baldwin). Can Lionel solve Frank’s murder and his last case?
Almost 20 years after “Belief is Everything!” Edward Norton took a seat on the director’s chair for the second time and once again demonstrated his versatile talents in “Motherless Brooklyn”. The screenplay adaptation based on the novel of the same name by Jonathan Lethem * also comes from Norton, and he also takes on the main role of the private detective Essrog.
The rest of the cast is not to be scoffed at either: alongside Bruce Willis, Hollywood greats such as Willem Dafoe and Alex Baldwin, Bobby Cannavale (“The Irishman”), Ethan Suplee (“The Wolf of Wall Street”) and Dallas Roberts (” The Gray – as Minna Men, not to forget Gugu Mbatha-Raw (“The Cloverfield Paradox”, “Das Zeitr├Ątsel”) as activist Laura-Rose.
