    Synopsis: George Clooney (The Perfect Storm) and John Turturro (Cars 2) embark on the adventure of a lifetime in this hilarious, offbeat road picture. And now, for the first time, this quirky gem shines more brightly than ever in Blu-ray High Definition!


    Fed up with crushing rocks on a prison farm in Mississippi, the dapper, silver-tongued Ulysses Everett McGill (Clooney) busts loose…except that he’s still shackled to two misfits from his chain gang: bad tempered Pete (Turturro) and sweet, dimwitted Delmar (Tim Blake Nelsen) With nothing to lose and buried loot toregain, the three embark on a riotous odyssey filled with chases, close calls, near misses and betrayal. Experience every unpredictable moment as it plays out in the crystal-clear sound and breathtaking picture quality of Blu-ray. Populated with strange characters,including a blind prophet, sexy sirens and a one-eyed Bible salesman (John Goodman), O Brother, Where Art Thou will leave you laughing at every outrageous and surprising twist and turn!

    It's funny. Just recently I had been lamenting how few Coen Brothers films were on Blu-ray. But then along come announcements for O Brother, Where Art Thou?, The Big Lebowski, Blood Simple, Raising Arizona and Miller's Crossing.


    Well, okay then. Guess it's getting a bit harder to complain. Not that I wouldn't mind a little Hudsucker Proxy, Barton Fink or Man Who Wasn't There for good measure.


    Very excited for this, should look and sound wonderful on Blu-ray!

    One of the best soundtracks of any film. I have always loved this movie, it's a first day buy for me. I'm eager to hear the soundtrack in all it's glory :)
