Putting their own unique spin on Homer's classic Odyssey, O Brother, Where Art Thou is another Coen brothers classic.
In a Golden Globe winning performance, George Clooney plays Ulysses Everett McGill, a silver-tongued petty criminal who finds himself on a chain gang in deepest Mississippi. Together with a clumsy duo of lame losers, simple minded Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson) and maladjusted Pete (John Turturro), he scams his way off the chain gang and into the adventure of a lifetime as the three set off in search of a fortune in buried treasure... still shackled and hopelessly unprepared for the road ahead.
Featuring a supporting cast of larger than life characters including John Goodman as Big Dan Teague, Holly Hunter as Everett's old flame Penny and Charles Durning as Governor Pappy O'Daniel, O Brother, Where Art Thou? is an irresistible mixture of high adventure, sidesplitting comedy and heartfelt emotion.
