O Brother, Where Art Thou?
The Coens borrowed from Homer’s The Odyssey in weaving the Depression-era tale of three escapees from a Mississippi prison chain gang, led by the fast-talking Everett Ulysses McGill (George Clooney). Running for their lives, they embark on an incredible journey full of challenging experiences and colorful characters. Post-screening discussion led by psychoanalyst Bonnie Buchele and Kansas City Film Critics Circle member Beck Ireland.
