From the tragic to the absurd, the Coen brothers’ names have become synonymous with dark comedy, snappy dialogue and an unprecedented love for filmmaking. With Hail Caesar! (2016), the Coen brothers pay tribute to the golden age of Hollywood but the story takes place when the studio system is at the brink of a downfall; television was introduced to mass audience and threatened the very existence of cinema and filmmaking.

The film portrays the life of a studio fixer who is caught in major production of film, Hail Caesar!, celebrity gossip, a foreign plot to overthrow the Hollywood establishment and his guilt of being an unfaithful catholic.

The film stars an ensemble cast of Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton and Channing Tatum.
