Come and celebrate your New Year’s Eve in style with a special screening of this Coen brothers classic!
Turning 20 this year, this absurdly entertaining and witty, film spills over into magical realism as it entangles history with mythology – and, of course, music.
Set in 1937 rural Mississippi during the Great Depression. Its story is a modern satire loosely based on Homer’s epic Greek poem The Odyssey that incorporates social features of the American South. George Clooney, John Turturro and Tim Blake Nelson play Ulysses Everett, Pete and Delmar, three sweaty convicts in the South, who bust off the chain gang and go on the run. They are looking for the treasure that the smooth-talking Everett assures them he has got hidden, from the job that landed him in jail in the first place. In the course of this hunt, they find treasure of a different sort: in a ramshackle recording studio, the errant trio pass themselves off as The Soggy Bottom Boys and make a blues record, which becomes a smash hit.
Populated with strange characters, including a blind prophet, sexy sirens, and a one-eyed Bible salesmen, it’s an odyssey filled with chases, close calls, near misses, and betrayal that will leave you laughing at every turn.
