O Brother, Where Art Thou?


Directed By: Coen Brothers and Joel Coen

2000 / English / 107 min

Is it a crime-comedy about the depression-era South? An adaptation of Homer’s unadaptable The Odyssey? An ode to the comedic genius of Sullivan’s Travels? Difficult to classify and even more difficult not to quote, Joel and Ethan Coen’s film is a comedy unlike any other. Featuring George Clooney along with an all-star cast.

Dr. Roger Macfarlane lectured on this film on March 11, 2020.
