Edward Norton heads an amazing all-star cast in the critically acclaimed Spike Lee film 25th HOUR. In 24 short hours Monty Brogan (Norton) goes to prison for seven long years. Once a king of Manhattan, Monty is about to say good-bye to the life he knew -- a life that opened doors to New York's swankest clubs but also alienated him from the people closest to him. In his last day on the outside, Monty tries to reconnect with his father (Brian Cox), and gets together with two old friends, Jacob (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and Slaughtery (Barry Pepper). And then there's his girlfriend, Naturelle (Rosario Dawson), who might (or might not) have been the one who tipped off the cops. Monty's not sure of much these days, but with time running out, there are choices to be made as he struggles to redeem himself in the 25th hour.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: An intelligent and well-acted film despite the usual Spike Lee excesses.

Engaging but violent drama. Not for kids.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie is meant for mature audiences only, and they may want to think twice about letting kids watch. Some older teens may be able to handle the violence, emotional distress, and questionable situations. The premise centers on the deeds of a drug dealer. The majority of the characters swear repeatedly. Almost every main character is placed in some kind of questionable situation (quasi-pedophilia, assault). Additionally, the film's New York setting and content evoke the memory of September 11th.
