Audacious and revolutionary, British playwright Dennis Potter's Freudian musical whodunit "The Singing Detective" has been hailed as one of television's rare dramatic masterpieces. Shortly before his death, Potter transformed his story into the screenplay of a feature film set in America. Under the direction of Keith Gordon, Robert Downey Jr. stars in this new version of Potter's dark tale about a pulp novelist struggling with a debilitating illness and a troubled past. Robin Wright Penn, Katie Holmes, Jeremy Northam and Adrian Brody costar.
