Mill Valley Film Festival invites you to their closing night screening of "Motherless Brooklyn" at CineArts Sequoia and closing night party at San Rafael Elks Lodge! Edward Norton makes a glorious, confident transition into the direc- tor’s chair with a stylish, engrossing adaptation of Jonathan Lethem’s acclaimed 1999 novel of the same name, an intricate, noir-ish story set in 1950s Brooklyn. When a deceptively routine case for a detective agency proves deadly, the team of gumshoes—led by Lionel Essrog, a man with Tourette’s syndrome and an uncanny photographic mem- ory—dives head-first into their investigation, uncovering a dangerous coverup and high-ranking corruption within the elected city planning committee of Brooklyn. Norton elicits effectively memorable turns from his prodigious A-list cast, which includes Bruce Willis, Alec Bald- win, Gugu Mbathaw-Raw, Cherry Jones, and Willem Dafoe.
