100 Word Review – The Hudsucker Proxy (1994)

“You know, for kids!” – Norville Barnes

Early Coen Brothers (The Big Lebowski, Fargo, No Country For Old Men) films are always a delight and this is no exception.

Recent business graduate and enthusiastically eccentric inventor Norville Barnes (Tim Robbins) is made president of a manufacturing company by Sydney J Mussburger (Paul Newman) as part of a stock scam.

Jennifer Jason Leigh and John Mahoney co-star in this weird, wonderful and wacky comedy about rare naivety in the business world and the joy of innocence.

It was the opening film at Cannes in 1994 and is still and absolute joy to watch,
