Details

Transporting the action to 1930s Mississippi, the Coen brothers offer their (very) loose take on Homer’s ‘Odyssey’ with this crime-comedy. When Ulysses Everett McGill and his two companions Delmar and Pete escape the chain gang, they have no idea that their adventure is just beginning as they encounter an endless parade of strange characters on their way to uncover buried loot. Featuring appearances from regular Coen players, and a fantastically catchy soundtrack, O Brother, Where Art Thou? shows the Coens at their most energetic.
