TT Cinema: No Country For Old Men w/ Old Forester Bourbon
We’re teaming up with our friends at Old Forester Bourbon to put on a screening of one of our all-time favourites, the Coen brothers’ Oscar-winning neo-Western crime thriller – No Country For Old Men.
A proper cat-and-mouse thriller, boasting a star-studded cast including Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, and Josh Brolin, the plot follows a Texas welder and Vietnam veteran (Brolin) who stumbles across two million dollars in the aftermath of a drug deal gone horribly awry.
His decision to abscond with the cash sets off a terrifyingly violent chain reaction, with enigmatic killer and hitman Anton Chigurh (Bardem) right at the heart of it. All the while, the disillusioned Sheriff Bell (Lee Jones) struggles to contain the rapidly escalating violence that seems to be consuming his once-peaceful Lone Star State town.
No Country For Old Men is now widely considered to be one of the most glittering jewels in the Coen brother’s crown, spinning cinematic gold out of Cormac McCarthy’s grim, darkly funny novel in their own trademark, distinctly-American style.
Upon its release in 2008 it picked up a startling number of awards, such was the profound impression if left on the critical community. Not only did it scoop four Oscars (including Best Picture), it also picked up two Golden Globes, three BAFTAs, and it has gone on to populate ‘top 10’ lists of critics around the world for years to come.
So come and get stuck in to some peak Coen brothers magic, with a complimentary bourbon cocktail in hand thanks our expert bar team and our good friends at Old Forester. Plus there’ll be free snacks courtesy of the guys at PROPERCORN to keep you going.
