Review, by Cari Beauchamp

"O Brother, Where Art Thou?" is the latest entry into the sometimes strange and consistently amazing world of the Coen Brothers.

In what has been described as a "modern-day spin on Homer's classic 'The Odyssey'", three escapees from a prison chain gang in the depression-era Southern United States find adventure and more than a few quirky characters in an effort to get back home - all while managing to stay one step ahead of their pursuers.
