Bishop Baron on “Hail, Caesar!”

by Bishop Robert BarronMarch 17, 2016
Spoiler Alert


The new Coen brothers movie, Hail, Caesar! is very quirky, unpredictable, and strange. It focuses on the Hollywood glory days of the 1950s, both extolling and mocking them. But something deeper is going on. From the very first scene, of the crucified Jesus, the religious dimensions are unavoidable. The film begins and ends with the Crucifixion and the sacrament of confession, both signs of people coming to terms with the presence of God.
