Leaves Of Grass Preview/Synopsis

Leaves Of Grass- NY/LA April 2 ( Expanding April 9 )

Directed by actor Tim Blake Nelson ( The Grey Zone ) Starring Edward Norton, Richard Dreyfuss, Susan Sarandon, Keri Russell, Tim Blake Nelson, Melanie Lynsky, Lee Fabian, Lucy Devito. Written by Blake Neslon, cinematography by BAFTA nominee Roberto Schaefer ( Finding Neverland, Stranger Than Fiction ) Edited Michelle Boticelli ( Greta ) Original music by Jeff Danna (Lakeview Terrace, Fracture )

LOG is the story of an Ivy league professor ( Norton ) who is lured back to his hometown in Oklahoma, by his small time pot growing twin brother ( also played by Norton )with a plan of taking down and taking over the local drug lord ( Dreyfuss )

Rated R for violence, pervasive language and drug content 105 min.

Oscar chances ? Possible for Norton in the actor category. Playing two opposite twins is no easy feat. I would think a Golden Globe in the Comedy/Musical category would be a very good bet.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
