O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Opening Night Film

In the Coen Brothers’ Oscar-winning reimagining of The Odyssey, three convicts pursue freedom and buried treasure against the backdrop of the Depression-era deep South. The Coens’ ability to capture quintessentially folkloric American life shines through as the men caper through cornfields, concert halls, and endlessly open roads, meeting a colorful cast of characters along the way. Equal parts affecting and amusing, the dialogue and soundtrack combine literary sensibilities with a dark and absurdist sense of humor.
