Set in 1950s Hollywood, this story follows a day in the life of 'fixer' Ed Mannix (Josh Brolin) who has to retrieve famous actor Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) after he has been kidnapped while filming the next big blockbuster 'Hail, Caesar!'. A group called The Future is holding Whitlock ransom for $100,000, and it's up to Mannix to get him back.
THE GUARDIAN’S PETER BRADSHAW SAYS: “Richly affectionate and very entertaining. Hail, Caesar! is something to be greeted as a gorgeous exercise in style.”
