Oscar-winning No Country for Old Men writer/directors Joel and Ethan Coen return to the Hollywood territory of Barton Fink for this hilarious, lovingly crafted comedy. The outstanding cast includes Scarlett Johansson as an Esther Williams-style musical swimming star, Ralph Fiennes as a frustrated English film director, Tilda Swinton as a waspish gossip columnist and Channing Tatum as a young dancing actor. There’s even a role for Expendables star Dolph Lundgren as a Soviet submarine commander!

Deliciously funny with many laugh-out-loud moments it is a joyful spoof of a lost era in Tinseltown’s history.
