“Motherless Brooklyn” will hit theaters in the U.S. on Nov. 1 and aside from its stellar cast, (Edward Norton, Alec Baldwin, Bruce Willis and the likes), a special feature is poised to make Taiwan fans delighted about it: the word “Formosa,” is the clue to understanding the movie.

布魯克林孤兒》背景設定在1950年的紐約。故事圍繞著患有妥瑞氏症的偵探,萊諾艾斯洛。艾斯洛後來目睹了好友和導師法蘭克被謀殺,並試圖找出兇手和背後真相。

“Motherless Brooklyn,” which is set in New York in the 1950s, centers around a mystery involving protagonist Lionel Essrog (Norton, who also directs), a young man with Tourette’s Syndrome. Essrog is recruited as a private eye by a man named Frank, who is soon murdered in an alley.

唯一的線索是法蘭克死前留下的訊息「福爾摩沙」和曾經提及的一位非白人女性。萊諾必須解開謎團找出謀殺案背後的原因。

The only clue Frank leaves behind is the word “Formosa” and a reference to a colored girl that Essrog must find in order to catch the culprit and solve the mystery.
