A noir stuck in a Minnesota deep freeze, the Coens’ breakthrough hit was declared by Roger Ebert “one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.” Bringing back memories of the notorious 1972 Virginia Piper kidnapping, Sheriff Marge Gunderson (Frances McDormand, in an Oscar-winning performance) tracks the criminals throughout the state in this both humorous and harrowing film. 1996, 35mm, 98 minutes.
