Set against the backdrop of 1950s New York, “Motherless Brooklyn” follows Lionel Essrog (Edward Norton), a lonely private detective afflicted with Tourette's Syndrome, as he ventures to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend, Frank Minna (Bruce Willis). Armed only with a few clues and the powerful engine of his obsessive mind, Lionel unravels closely-guarded secrets that hold the fate of the whole city 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 honour his friend and save the woman who might be his own salvation.
There is only a small window of time for a man to meet the right woman. If she's too young, she's too idealistic. If she's too old, she's cynical.This is the Window Theory, according to Ethan Hump Humphries (Corey Large - Chasing Ghosts , Deep Rescue ), a 25-year-old man suffering from a classic case of Peter Pan syndrome - he refuses to grow up. In the seven years since graduating from high school, his sole accomplishment is being able to get into any club of party in Los Angeles. Supported by wealthy parents, he works out, parties, and brings home a different girl every night. And he couldn't be happier.Things change, however, when Ethan receives a call from his drunk friend Brad, who accidentally spills the beans about their childhood friend Jeff's wedding. Feeling left out, Ethan immediately flies home for the ceremony, only to discover that Jeff (Luke Flynn - grandson of acting legend Errol Flynn) is marrying Ethan's high school sweetheart, Stephanie (Jennifer O'Dell - Point Doom , Sometimes they come back...for more ).Sliding into regression, Ethan tries to recreate his high school glory days with his friends. Although his relationship with Jeff is in shambles, Ethan focuses his efforts on getting Stephanie back before it's too late. But is he really in love with her, or simply trying to hold on to the past?Forced to re-evaluate what matters most in life, Ethan begins to understand that he has a lot to learn about friendship, love and growing up.Ethan may think that women only have a small window of desirability, but if he doesn't clean up his act soon, his window of opportunity is about to slam shut.Special Features:None Listed.
