Classics & Cocktails: O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?

Viewing: June 28,2024

Watch Trailer Director: The Coen Brothers
Cast: George Clooney, John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson, John Goodman, Holly Hunter

When three convicts escape from a Mississippi chain-gang, they go on the hunt for buried treasure and wind up on a harrowing and hilarious adventure that Homer himself could scarcely come up with!

The featured cocktail is the Dapper Pie Spritz, made with Appleton rum, fresh lemon and apple juice, turbinado sugar, Tiki bitters and seltzer.

The Coen Brothers expertly blend together the Depression-era South, Homeric epic poetry, and delta folk/blues in their sepia-tinted satire O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? Inspired as much by The Odyssey as by the 1941 Peter Sturgis film Sullivan’s Travels, this follow-up to Fargo and The Big Lebowski represents The Coens at the height of their powers.

Featuring unforgettable performances by George Clooney, John Turturro, and Tim Blake Nelson, the cast also includes Chris Thomas King, John Goodman, Holly Hunter, and cameos from a host of luminaries from the folk music scene of the time. The Grammy-winning soundtrack, produced by music legend T Bone Burnett, is a who’s-who of American folk, bluegrass, and country music performers; and, the film was nominated for both the Best Cinematography and Best Adapted Screenplay Oscars at the 2001 Academy Awards ceremony.
