Capitol Studio’s ‘physical producer’ Eddie Mannix works around the clock making sure the movies get made and the stars keep their images squeaky-clean in this screwball comedy from the Coen brothers. When Capitol’s main star, Baird Whitlock mysteriously disappears, it’s up to Eddie to track him down, cover up any misdemeanours and keep the reporters at bay. Revelling in the quirks of the Hollywood studio system, Hail Caesar! features sumptuously produced vignettes displaying the range of film productions taking place at the time. This is a delight for fans of the Golden Age of cinema as well as a mystery that unravels in the Coens’ typically playful fashion.
