"O Brother, Where Art Thou?" presented by 1st Friday Film Series

Friday Sep 5, 2014, 7:30 p.m.

Film strip

Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month.

Free and open to public.

What do you get when you cross The Odyssey, the Deep South, the Great Depression and The Three Stooges…? Well, you get another madcap Coen Brothers movie, of course — one that also launched the year’s best soundtrack! It’s O BROTHER, WHERE ARE THOU? (2001)

This shaggy, roller-coaster ride (very) loosely based on Homer’s epic poem starring George Clooney (here a Clark Gable doppelgänger), John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson, John Goodman, Holly Hunter and the late Charles Durning. As with all Coen Brothers movies, O Brother Where Art Thou is brilliantly written, acted, and directed. And it’s hilarious.
