George Clooney stars in The Coen Brothers' "O Brother Where Art Thou?" tonight at 7:45/6:45c before a new episode of Portlandia at 10/9c

Only Joel and Ethan Coen could reimagine Homer’s “The Odyssey” as a Depression-era Southern fable starring George Clooney, John Turturro and Tim Blake Nelson as escaped convicts. The jailbirds bust out of prison and embark on a voyage that made Ulysses’ trip look like a walk in the park on a sunny day. The film chronicles the surreal exploits of the escapees as they make their way through the outlying areas of the South on the hunt for buried treasure — and, in the particular case of Ulysses Everett McGill (Clooney), a reunion with his estranged wife (Holly Hunter) and kids. Along the way, they are tempted, thwarted and toyed with to varying degrees by many strange characters, including three seductive “sirens,” a one-eyed cyclops in the form of a traveling salesman (John Goodman) and a ruthless lawman (Daniel von Bargen) hot on their trail — and manage to reinvent themselves as bluegrass musical sensations The Soggy Bottom Boys. Let’s all watch a toe-tapping tune by the boys:

“O Brother Where Art Thou?” is one of the Coen Brothers’ most crowd-pleasing films, which is why we’re showing it tonight at 7:45 p.m. ET. Watch the trailer now and then tune in tonight at 7:45 p.m. ET before a new episode of Portlandia kicks off at 10/9c:


“O Brother Where Art Thou?” airs on IFC tonight at 7:45 PM ET; Sunday, Jan. 27 at 8:45 PM ET; Monday, Jan. 28 at 12:00 AM ET
