The Tim Blake Nelson-directed Leaves of Grass has a second trailer. Edward Norton plays identical twins and it premiered to glowing reviews at the Toronto Film Festival last year, but I’m not sure whether to trust those. Lord knows the magic of Toronto could cast a rosy glow on anything.
An Ivy League professor (played by Edward Norton) is lured back to his Oklahoma hometown, where his twin brother, a small-time pot grower, has concocted a simple scheme to take down a local drug lord.
I don’t know how I’m supposed to take this. Is that accent supposed to be for real? It seems really campy, but then at times almost like it wants to be taken seriously, like Nicolas Cage. I’m just surprised anyone has the balls to play identical twins after Van Damme did it in Double Impact. You can’t repaint the Sistine Chapel, dude.
