Edward Norton directs and stars in this crime drama based on the 1999 novel of the same name about a private investigator with Tourette syndrome investigating his mentor’s murder in 1950s New York.
Lionel Essrog is a lonely private detective who doesn’t let Tourette’s syndrome stand in the way of his job. Gifted with a few clues and an obsessive mind, Lionel sets out to solve the murder of Frank Minna — his mentor and only friend.
