”Hail, Caesar!"

A comedy drama from the Coen Brothers, set in 1950s' Hollywood when the studios were in their heyday.

Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) is the studio 'fixer' at Capitol Pictures, who is constantly trying to solve all the problems of the actors and filmmakers . His latest assignments involve a disgruntled director, a singing cowboy, a beautiful swimmer and a handsome dancer. As if all this wasn't enough, Mannix faces his biggest challenge when Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) gets kidnapped while in costume for the swords-and-sandals epic "Hail, Caesar!" If the studio doesn't pay a ransom of $100,000, it's the end of the line for the movie star.

A group called
The Future is holding Whitlock and it's up to Mannix to get him back. The star-studded cast also includes Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton.
