Harpur Cinema – Hail, Caesar!
October 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$4.00
Hail, Caesar! – Joel & Ethan Coen – USA – 2016 – 106 min.
As they revisit the Hollywood industry of the early 50s, the Coen brothers create a delirious comedy, which at once pays tribute to this era of cinema and offers a satirical critique. A studio fixer with moral issues (Josh Brolin), an aquatic musical star, hardboiled and tough-talking mermaid (Scarlett Johansson), a B-western singing cowboy (Alden Ehrenreich) cast as a romantic lead, a hyper-refined British director (Ralph Fiennes), identical twins and rival gossip columnists (Tilda Swinton), a popular song-and-dance sailor (Channing Tatum), a major star in full Roman consul costume (George Clooney) kidnapped by a mysterious group of Communist screenwriters. “The Coen brothers conjure up nostalgic joy from this hilarious knockabout homage to the golden age of film” (The Guardian).
Nominated: Academy Awards – BAFTA Awards – Art Directors Guild – International Cinephile Society Awards.
