In a fairytale 50's New York, scheming Vice-President of Hudsucker Industries (the priceless Paul Newman) installs mail-room hayseed Norville Barnes (Tim Robbins) as President in a bid for the chair himself. Norville, to everyone's surprise, has ideas of his own, including one that's, you know! For kids!! Lushly photographed by Coen regular Roger Deakins, this hilariously exuberant satire remains one of the Brothers most polished and purely enjoyable films.
Nominated Best Cinematography Award - Roger Deakins, British Society of Cinematographers
Nominated Palme d'Or - Joel Cohen, Cannes Film Festival
"A thoughtful, often visually striking agitprop work." - Alexander Walker , Evening Standard

Kim Newman, Empire
