You have not known what you are; you have slumber'd upon yourself all your life,
Your eyelids have been the same as closed most of the time,
What you have done returns already in mockeries,
(Your thrift, knowledge, prayers, if they do not return in mockeries, what is their return?)
The mockeries are not you,
Underneath them and within them I see you lurk,
I pursue you where none else has pursued you...
-Walt Whitman, 'Leaves of Grass'
Keri Russell's character quotes the above passage to Edward Norton's buttoned down professor in Tim Blake Nelson's new film, 'Leaves of Grass.' Norton stars as a pair of twins: Billy, a classics professor who has abandoned his Oklahoma roots for the Ivy League; and Buddy, a small-time pot grower who basks in the clichéd hockey-haired idiocy of his hometown. The film takes off when the former returns home for the first time in years when his brother tricks him into helping to take down a local drug lord.
