Leaves Of Grass Review

Image for Leaves Of Grass

Classics professor Bill (Norton) leaves his Ivy League surroundings and gets caught up in the drug dealings of his identical twin Bill (also Norton).


Tim Blake Nelson makes chewy, thought-provoking pictures — though this could hardly be more different from his last directorial effort, Holocaust rebellion drama The Grey Zone. Edward Norton delivers knock-out performances — as a Classics professor and his pot-dealing identical twin — and while the story doesn’t quite satisfy, this is a smart, sometimes very funny, cult in the making.

A great perfomance by Norton as the twins with some very funny moments, but ultimately a little unsatisfying.
