O Brother, Where Art Thou? 2000. USA. Directed by Joel Coen. Screenplay by Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. Based on The Odyssey, by Homer. With George Clooney, John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson. 35mm. 107 min.
In the Coen brothers' bluegrass-infused take on Homer’s Odyssey, the Cyclops, the Sirens, and Cassandra are transformed into Depression-era characters from Mississippi. On the run from a prison farm, three outlandish convicts somehow become an overnight musical sensation while trying to make their way home. Everett, Peter, and Delmar are blessed with pluck, more than a touch of ignorance, and voices that people want to hear on the radio!
