O Brother Where Art Thou ?????

This is my second viewing of this film. I dug it out of our files. I really can’t explain it, but I love this film. It has a beautiful sense of flow, and reflective of the deep south, both in its’ charm, but also its’ hypocrisy and bigotry. The acting is superb, and the script line was flawless. It is the story of three convicts that escape from a Mississippi chain gang. It follows their flight through the Mississippi farmlands, with a story line written to suggest the travels of Odysseus. By forming a song group that becomes famous, they eventually get pardons from the governor, though with several harrowing escapes from southern justice (or absence of it).
