O Brother, Where Art Thou?

A wonderful, whimsical graft of Homer's "The Odyssey" telling the tale of three chain gang escapees in 1930s Mississippi. George Clooney is the slick of hair and tongue leader who sets out with fellow cons John Turturro and Tim Blake Nelson on a quest filled with sexy sirens, a one-eyed Bible salesman, gangster Baby Face Nelson, dancing Klansmen and even a hit record! Charles Durning, John Goodman and Holly Hunter co-star.
