If you are a genuine movie-buff Hail Caesar! is a movie that you must watch. If you are interested in the history of Hollywood and love to watch the way the studios in the 1950s used to function, then you must watch this movie by the Coens. This is a slapstick comedy film that shows you the era when the studios dominated the movie world. The studio that is being talked about is Capitol Pictures and the film depicts one day in the life of the fixer of this studio- Eddie Mannix.
The studio is producing a big budget film by the name of Hail Caesar! and the hero of the film is Baid Whitlock. This character is being played by George Clooney. This is a movie that depicts the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
The female lead of this film is Scarlett Johansson who plays the role of Deeann Moran. She plays a swimmer turned actress and is also pregnant.

The other important character of Eddie Mannix that is played by Josh Brolin is the main fixer of the Hollywood studio.
Hail Ceasar! is a great cocktail of very famous names in the industry. The actors have fit so well in the roles of the characters they play, that they have become almost unrecognizable. It seems as if they were born to play those roles. This star-studded movie is just not worth watching because of the stars but because the movie is made well and can keep the audiences laughing and rolling in their seats. This film is based on the ways the Hollywood studios worked in the 1950s.
In those times, the studios predominated the whole film industry and had to maintain a reputation. For this, they used to have a fixer. Here the role of the fixer named Eddie Mannix has been played by Josh Brolin. This film is a hilarious depiction of a day in the life of Eddie Mannix when he tries to save the reputation of the studio b hiding the pregnancy news of the female lead of the film and tries to free the star of the film from the communist kidnappers. The kidnappers, on the other hand, are trying to convince the star of the film about their ideology by taking him out.
All this leads to a hilarious state of events and makes the Coens’ film a great watch.
There is no doubt about it! The Coen brothers have managed to get a great number of stars to work in this period film named Hail Caesar! The lead role is played by Josh Brolin who has the role of a fixer for the Hollywood studio. This movie is actually a bouquet of many small films in one and revolves around the Hollywood studio’s struggle to keep its reputation high.
George Clooney plays the lead role in the big film produced by the studio by the name of Hail Caesar! This is a period film that is based on Jesus Christ and his crucifixion. There are many other people in the movie that have their own stories running alongside.
The heroine of the film is pregnant, and that is a big problem for the studio because she does not want to marry the man who is the father of the child. This is definitely against the American culture of that time, and the studio does not want this news to spread.
Channing Tatum is a communist that is behaving like an American star. He is the one who is trying to play the part in a hilarious manner. The film also has a narrator but the name of the narrator is not disclosed for unknown reasons.
The film is a great entertainer and like most of the Coen brothers’ films this film also makes you laugh and have fun throughout.
