Hail Caesar! now in theater!
Directed by: Ethan Coen, Joel Coen
Packed with period detail and perfectly cast, Hail, Caesar! finds the Coen brothers delivering an agreeably lightweight love letter to post-war Hollywood. As always with the Coens, the film looks impeccable. Employing several perfectly imagined and digitally created Hollywood backlots to evoke the moment when the Old Hollywood was just beginning to show its age (the film is specifically set in 1951), the directors and their ace team show their customary flair and have fun decking out the varied assortment of films being shot in the story.
