‘Hail, Caesar!’ Plot Summary
Hail, Caesar is 30 hours in the life of Eddie Mannix in 1951. As the head of physical production at Capitol Pictures, he spends most of that time as a fixer to keep the scandalous behavior of his stars out of the press. Hot on his tail are the twin sisters and rival gossip columnists named Thora Thacker and Thessaly Thacker. However, things spiral out of control when his unmarried synchronized swimming actress DeeAnna Moran gets pregnant. Then, someone drugs his biggest star, Baird Whitlock and abducts him. As he struggles to put these fires out, the Lockheed Corporation courts him with an offer for a high-level executive position, but Eddie has his reservations with joining them.
