O BROTHER directed by Ethan & Joel Coen starring George Clooney and John Turturro
The writing, directing, and producing team of Joel Coen and Ethan Coen created this picaresque comedy (inspired in part by Homer’s The Odyssey) set in the Deep South during the Depression. Suave and fancy-talking Everett Ulysses McGill (George Clooney), dim-witted Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson), and easily-excitable Pete (John Turturro) are serving time together on a prison chain gang. Everett knows where $1.2 million is hidden that’s theirs for the taking, and the three manage to escape.
This movie will let you with no sorrow…
The song is “Man of constant sorrows” by The Soggy Bottom Boys (original artist Dick Burnett)
