Hail, Caesar!


hailcaesarIn 1951, Hollywood fixer Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) juggles a busy life, including trying to find out where the studioā€™s biggest star (George Clooney) has disappearedā€¦ The Coen brothers on familiar turf, with yet another kidnapping and a comedy set half a century ago. The biggest appeal here is how lovingly the directors portray and send up the Hollywood studio system, showing the ā€œrealityā€ behind the making of Bible epics, B Westerns and musicals. This is done with an irresistible sense of humor of course, and an outlandish subplot involving Communist screenwriters. Wonderful cast, but perhaps a tad too sprawling.

2016-U.S. 108 min. Color. Written and directed byĀ Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. Cast: Josh Brolin (Eddie Mannix), George Clooney (Baird Whitlock), Alden Ehrenreich (Hobie Doyle), Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swintonā€¦ Channing Tatum, Alison Pill, Jonah Hill, Frances McDormand, Christopher Lambert, Fisher Stevens.

Trivia: Thatā€™s allegedly Dolph Lundgren standing on top of a submarine near the end of the film.
