O Brother, Where Art Thou?

George Clooney stars along with John Turturro, John Goodman, and Holly Hunter. The comedy follows three chaingang escapees on a mystical, musical journey through 1930s Mississippi. Though the plot is based on Homer’s Odyssey, the title refers to the socially conscious film that the Hollywood director in Preston Sturges’s 1941 satire Sullivan’s Travels wants to make.
