New York, 1941. Socially conscious scriptwriter Barton Fink (John Turturro) has made it big on Broadway. Now Tinsel Town is taking notice. Hired by Hollywood to write a wrestling picture, Barton quits the city smog for movie stardom. L.A. has got the Barton Fink feeling. Barton Fink has got writer's block. Enlisting the help of able assistant Audrey (Judy Davis) and amiable neighbour Charlie Meadows (John Goodman), Fink finds the real-life inspiration he seeks come from the most sinister of sources. From master movie makers the Coen Brothers (Blood Simple, Millers Crossing) comes the unanimously acclaimed Barton Fink. The hitting, offbeat comedy story of Hollywood heartache, faceless movie moguls and headless corpses.
