In 25th Hour, a convicted drug dealer (Edward Norton) spends his last day of freedom introspectively before heading to prison to serve a seven-year sentence.

In one of the first studio films to acknowledge the aftermath of 9/11, Lee examines not only his main character’s past and his ties to friends and family but also the multifaceted relationship between New York City and its inhabitants. (135 mins., 35mm)
