The Ladykillers

The Ladykillers

by Coen, Joel Coen




The Coen brothers make a spectacular return to the black comedy of their classic films in this "hilariously vulgar . . . farce" (St. Louis Post-Dispatch). With the arrival of G. H. Dorr III, PhD., unassuming residents of a sleepy delta town are in for a surprise--especially the God-fearing Marva Munson, a widow with an aversion to "hippety-hop music" and a room to let. By providing the villanous doctor with a bed and a cellar in which to practice his "church music," the landlady unwittingly provides Doctor and his motley crew of thieves with a place to plan the perfect heist. Perfect, that is, until she becomes suspicious . . .
