Hail, Caesar! | 2016
Eddie Mannix's job as a studio fixer begins before dawn. Each film on the studio's slate comes complete with its own headache, and Mannix is tasked with finding a solution to every one of them. Over the course of 24 hours, he must procure sign-off from religious leaders on a Biblical epic, deal with a director unhappy with the casting of cowboy star Hobie Doyle in his sophisticated drama, find a way for swimming sensation DeeAnna Moran to avoid scandal and figure out why song-and-dance superstar Burt Gurney has been acting so strangely. Now, Mannix has been confronted with the crisis of his career: one of the studio's biggest moneymakers, Baird Whitlock, has been kidnapped, and a mysterious group called "The Future" has claimed responsibility. Mannix must keep the problems under wraps, all the while horse-trading information to keep his actors' names out of the gossip columns. For this fixer, it's all in a day's work.
