Film: Hail, Caesar! (12A)
Mon, 13th June, 2016 @ 19:00pm - 20:45pm£3 – £4.50
George Clooney stars as a kidnapped movie star in this offbeat period comedy from the Coen brothers.
Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) is a hard-nosed film studio fixer, who’s kept busy hushing up scandals during Hollywood’s golden age. Now he faces his biggest challenge to date. Baird Whitlock (George Clooney), wooden star of Capitol Pictures’ prestige historical drama Hail Caesar, has been abducted while filming. The kidnappers are a mysterious organisation styling themselves ‘The Future’, who demand a ransom of $100,000.
Oscar-winning No Country for Old Men writer/directors Joel and Ethan Coen return to the Hollywood territory of Barton Fink for this hilarious, lovingly crafted comedy. The outstanding cast includes Scarlett Johansson as an Esther Williams-style musical swimming star, Ralph Fiennes as a film director, Tilda Swinton as a gossip columnist and Channing Tatum as a young actor. There’s even a role for Expendables star Dolph Lundgren as a Soviet submarine commander!
★★★★ “George Clooney bigger, broader, zanier… The Coen brothers put their signature quirky deadpan to good use in this gloriously watchable period caper about the golden era of Hollywood.” The Guardian
