O Brother, Where Art Thou?

If you like old timey heist movies, then you’ve probably seen O Brother, Where Art Thou? The Coen Brothers comedy starring George Clooney is a Depression-era adaptation of Homer’s The Odyssey. Three men who are on a chain gang for petty crimes team up to free themselves and find a “treasure” buried by Clooney’s character. As they make their way through the American South, they encounter all kinds of characters to aid or hinder their quest. The most memorable thing about the film is likely the soundtrack, filled with spirituals, gospel and good old time bluegrass. The soundtrack even won two Grammy Awards.
