"A riveting drama of death, dismemberment, small town criminality, and exaggerated accents."—Mike Massie, Gone With The Twins

"The Coen Brothers are among the most able practitioners in America and this film is one of their best attempts to turn a familiar genre -- the True Crime drama -- into something miles away from the ordinary."—Derek Malcolm, Guardian


Join us for our traditional last Rooftop Series show of the season, a screening of the Coen Bros. darkly comic-crime classic Fargo. Frances McDormand stars as a pregnant police chief investigating a series of homicides across the frozen tundra. Against a sprawling Minnesota landscape, a car salesman (William H. Macy) hires two criminals (Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare) to kidnap his wife. But when the scheme goes sour, wood chippers get involved, and the haphazard kidnapping plot turns deadly serious. Winner of two Academy Awards. Come enjoy the last. It'll be a nice time, yah, you betcha.
