Synopsis by Rovi

Edward Norton writes, directs and stars—alongside Bruce Willis, Leslie Mann, Alec Baldwin, and Willem Dafoe—in this adaptation of Jonathan Lethem’s 1999 novel of the same name. He plays a private detective living with Tourette's syndrome in 1950s New York City. His determination to solve the murder of his best friend and mentor takes him through the Harlem jazz scene, the Brooklyn slums, and into the ranks of the city’s most powerful men.
