Quotes

Bolger: Do you believe in a higher power?
Brady Kincaid: Yea, I do. I do. It's the only way to make sense of all this. Otherwise, it's just pure fucking chaos.
Bolger: Like where we is created by him and he judges what we do?
Brady Kincaid: Well, I think it's more like... like parallel lines.
Bolger: Parallel lines?
Brady Kincaid: You know, like two lines go on and on forever and don't ever touch?
Bolger: Yea.
Brady Kincaid: 'Cept, they don't actually exist in nature. And man can't create true parallel. It's just more of a concept... Well that concept, that perfection, we know it ...

Twice the screen time with Edward Norton!
15 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of watching the world premiere of Leaves of Grass at the Toronto International Film Festival and was not disappointed. Edward Norton plays identical twin brothers, Billy, an accomplished university professor and Brady a big time drug dealer in Tulsa. The film wonderfully builds up to their first encounter after many years of being estranged, bringing with it much hilarity. The acting was superb - I was thoroughly engrossed in Norton's portrayal of two seemingly different characters. The supporting cast was strong and the director, Tim Blake Nelson had a major role in his own right. Billy and Brady's mother, played by Susan Sarandon brought a nuanced and understated performance. Subtle references to Norton's other films such as Primal Fear and Fight Club were a clever touch. Overall, the film had some great humour and lots of suspenseful moments. This movie is a must see for any Ed Norton fan.
