John Turturro (O Brother, Where Art Thou?) shines in the lead role as Barton Fink, the Coen Brothers' (Fargo, No Country for Old Men) hilarious satire set in the 1940s Hollywood. Barton Fink is a Broadway playwright who reluctantly relocates to Hollywood to write screenplays. Ordered to write a low budget screenplay about wrestling, Fink manages to type one sentence and then... nothing! Although his chatty insurance salesman neighbor Charlie (John Goodman, 10 Cloverfield Lane) helps out by teaching Barton about wrestling, the clock ticks, the temperature rises, and Barton's life spins more and more out of control. The top-notch cast includes Judy Davis (Naked Lunch), Michael Lerner (Busting), John Mahoney (TV’s Frasier), Tony Schalhoub (TV’s Monk), Jon Polito (Miller’s Crossing) and Steve Buscejmi (Reservoir Dogs), with a hauntingly beautiful score by Carter Burwell (Blood Simple) and gorgeous cinematography by Roger Deakins (The Big Lebowski). Barton Fink received three 1991 Oscar nominations - (Best Supporting Actor-Lerner, Art Direction/Set Direction and Costume Design), and also won Best Actor (Turturro) and Best Director (Joel Coen), as well as the coveted Palme d'Or at Cannes.
