Overview

An Ivy League classics professor becomes mixed up in his lawless identical twin's drug dealings after receiving word that his brother has been murdered, and returning to Oklahoma to discover he's been hoodwinked. To say that Bill Kincaid (Edward Norton) is ashamed of his upbringing is an understatement at best. Turning his back on his working-class parents and working diligently to erase any traces of his Southern accent, Bill develops a reputation as a true scholar dedicated to excellence and philosophical exploration. His brother, Brady (also Norton), on the other hand, grows weed. Arriving home to find Brady very much alive, Bill winds up mending bridges with their capricious mother, Daisy (Susan Sarandon), and reluctantly agrees to help his brother out of a tight jam involving notorious drug kingpin Pug Rothbaum (Richard Dreyfuss), who might just send both siblings to an early grave. Meanwhile, Bill can't help noticing that free-spirited poet Janet (Keri Russell) has somehow managed to find true happiness in the most unlikely surroundings.

I had been familiar with this movie for a while before I actually finally sat down and gave it a watch. I figured I ought to, considering I do rather like Edward Norton as an actor. He has been in a lot of pretty good movies and done a pretty good job at them. This was not my favorite role of his, or rather I should say "these" were not my favorite roles of his, considering he played 2 roles in this, but he did a good job at the roles, as did the other actors in their respective roles. Altogether it was a decent flick. If you're into dramas at all, you would probably enjoy this movie. I'm not as huge into dramas as I am say action, comedy, and geek movies, but I like many of them well enough. It's a shame that he will not resume his role as Bruce Banner in The Avengers. I thought he did well in The Incredible Hulk, but Mark Ruffalo is taking over for him in Avengers. Shame, shame. Anyway though, none the less, Edward Norton is awesome, and he did well in this flick. I recommend at least giving it a watch.
