Ed Norton stars in this film about twin brothers--one a professor at Brown University, the other a redneck--who come back together in Oklahoma when the ne'er-do-well, marijuana-dealing brother is implicated in a criminal matter. With Susan Sarandon as the boys' mother. Although most in the audience did, I did not cheer at the end...even when the director, Tim Blake Nelson, and Ed Norton entered the theater to take questions. For me, the story just did not ring true.
