Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen (USA, 2000, 107 min.).
Set in rural Mississippi during the Great Depression, O Brother, Where Art Thou? combines elements loosely borrowed from Homer’s Odyssey with southern Americana folklore. Three men (George Clooney, John Turturro, and Tim Blake Nelson) break away from a prison chain gang in search of a promised treasure. With a celebrated soundtrack by T Bone Burnett, picturesque cinematography, and captivating performances, O Brother, Where Art Thou? has become one of the Coen brothers’ most beloved films.
