The Movie "oh, Brother" Is One To Laugh At And Sing Along With
This article first appeared in issue 34, and was written by Linda Waggener.
Clean out the change from the couch cushions or cash in a CD - whatever it takes, just get the money and go see the hilarious movie "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou" starring Kentuckian George Clooney.
If you can appreciate singing old time spirituals on the shore during baptizings at the river; the Great Depression when a nickel was a lot of money; or harmonizing on family trips to songs like "You are My Sunshine", then you're in for a special treat.
The magic begins among the first few scenes with parishioners walking through deep, beautiful Mississippi woods to a country baptizing, singing "Lord, show me the way". The movie could trail off on a serious, sentimental path, except for Clooney's partners in crime who mistakenly think that the preacher's promised "full cleansing and washing away of all past sins" means that the law will also forgive and wipe the slate clean. Not so, and the chase heats up. That's when the fun begins and laughter follows all the way through to the end.
Excuse this abrupt ending, but I've gotta go see this movie again. It's one to see on the big screen and then to own when it comes out on video.
