As the film follows Capitol Films’ Head of Physical Production, Eddie Mannix, through twenty-fours of doing his job (he fixes problems that the studio’s actors create) we are taken through four very clever pastiches.

The problem with Hail, Caesar is that, if you’re not an avid fan of films from 65 years ago, you will probably miss out on over half the movie.

Lucy Is a Magnificent Mess!

Lucy

No one has ever accused Luc Besson of being a master filmmaker – despite gems like Léon: the Professional, La Femme Nikita and The Fifth Element.

Somehow, it works.
