The writing, directing, and producing team of Joel Coen and Ethan Coen created this picaresque comedy (inspired in part by Homer's The Odyssey ) set in the Deep South during the Depression. Suave and fancy-talking Everett Ulysses McGill (George Clooney), dim-witted Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson), and easily-excitable Pete (John Turturro) are serving time together on a prison chain gang. Everett knows where $1.2 million is hidden that's theirs for the taking, and the three manage to escape; however, a stranger soon warns them that they'll find treasure, but not the sort they're looking for. As Everett and his partners hit the road, they happen upon a gluttonous bible salesman, Big Dan Teague (John Goodman); meet up with Baby Face Nelson (Michael Badalucco) as he robs a bank; encounter three Sirens doing their washing; run into Everett's estranged wife Penny (Holly Hunter), who has told everyone her husband was killed in a train wreck; find themselves in the middle of a heated campaign between political boss Pappy O'Daniel (Charles Durning), and reformist candidate Homer Stokes (Wayne Duvall); and even find time to make a hit record as The Soggy Bottom Boys. Noted songwriter T-Bone Burnett helped compile the songs (combining vintage country blues tunes with originals in the same style), while Carter Burwell composed the background score. Incidentally, the title O Brother, Where Art Thou? is a reference to the classic Preston Sturges comedy Sullivan's Travels, in which a director plans to make a serious "message picture" with that name.

New. This is a Coen brothers movie, so when three escaped convicts are told by a prophetic blind man that they will see a cow floating by on a roof, you can be sure that they will. George Clooney earned a Golden Globe for his rollicking performance as Ulysses, who escapes a Depression-era chain gang to stop his wife from getting remarried, using the lure of a bogus hidden treasure to secure the services of two fellow convicts. The chart-topping soundtrack launched a revival of American roots music.

Hello I love that the Bluray version is actually on here. Not trying to sound like I am complaining but 40 or more dollars is a lot of money, considering it was issued in 2011. I would love to see this movie in Bluray format, for a different affordable price. I am glad that I found the option to get it through hpbmarketplace.
Thanks for all of your wonderful and amazing finds.
