When Ivy League classics professor Bill Kincaid (Edward Norton) receives news of the murder of his estranged identical twin brother, Brady (also Edward Norton!) in a pot deal gone bad, he leaves the world of Northeastern academia to travel back to his home state of Oklahoma. Upon arrival, he finds that reports of his brother’s death are greatly exaggerated, and he’s soon caught up in the dangerous and unpredictable world of drug commerce in the backwaters of the Southwest. In the process, he reconnects with his eccentric mother (Susan Sarandon), meets a pretty and free-spirited local (Keri Russell), and unwittingly helps his brother settle a score with a menacing drug kingpin (Richard Dreyfuss) who uses Tulsa’s small Jewish community for cover. Written, directed by, and co-starring Oklahoma-born actor Tim Blake Nelson as Bill’s unwaveringly loyal best friend, the darkly comic LEAVES OF GRASS follows a twisting narrative path that merges crime drama, drug comedy, classical philosophy, and sudden violence, while boasting a truly remarkable cast.
