O’ Brother Where Art Thou?
2000
*****
Director: Joel Coen
Cast: George Clooney, John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson, Holly Hunter

George Clooney shows surprising aptitude for comedy in this absolutely charming story of three prison escapees. The film relies more on lovely characters and hilarious dialogue than on a strong storyline, which is incidentally based on Homer’s Odyssey. The wonderful soundtrack became a bigger hit than the film.
