Hail, Cae­sar! (PG) The new Coen brothers movie is set in Hol­ly­wood in the early 1950s and stars Josh Brolin as the fixer for a big Hol­ly­wood stu­dio who is kept busy solv­ing any num­ber of prob­lems in­clud­ing way­ward star­lets, un­mar­ried preg­nant ac­tresses, a cow­boy star called on to act in a ro­man­tic melo­drama, and the kid­nap­ping of the lead ac­tor of the stu­dio’s lat­est religious epic. The lat­ter role is played by Ge­orge Clooney, and there’s a tasty sup­port­ing cast that in­cludes Scar­lett Jo­hans­son, Chan­ning Ta­tum (singing and danc­ing), two Tilda Swin­tons and Ralph Fi­ennes as a pompous di­rec­tor. De­spite all this, the film is a mi­nor ef­fort from the tal­ented Coens.
