MPR Cube Critic Stephanie Curtis joins Jade and Sean McPherson to talk about 'Hail, Caesar!', the new Coen Brothers film.

It's a star-studded cast including Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and Channing Tatum.

Stephanie says set in the "desperate years of the 50s where films were trying to compete with television", the film is about Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), a "fixer" working in the Hollywood film industry, trying to discover what happened to a cast member who vanishes during filming.

Stephanie says this is one of the goofier Coen Brothers films and though the average viewer might not get all the 1950s references, they'll still enjoy it.

"Hail, Caesar" is rated PG-13 and is playing in theaters across Minnesota. Official Trailer
