O Brother, Where Art Thou? 2000

Three escaped convicts led by George Clooney experience their own Odyssey in the American Deep South of 1930, ravaged by racism and the Great Depression. Furthermore, this musical Coen brothers favorite is a cheerful and hilarious affair.

Three prisoners manage to escape during forced labor. They plan to retrieve the loot that one of them has hidden. Since the money is hidden in a house that will soon be flooded due to the construction of a new dam, there is a need for haste. However, that is not the only difficulty the three face.

Connoisseurs of the Odyssey are invited to O Brother, Where Art Thou? treated to a feast of recognition: sirens, a cyclops and a woman left behind who gets enough male attention. People who don't know the Odyssey are treated to a treat of a film, with one of the best soundtracks ever. Can be seen in a digitally polished version.
