About the Event
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Fargo, join us for a screening and author intro and Q+A with Todd Melby for added insight into one of the Coens’ most beloved films. Tickets can be purchased with a copy of the book. Books will also be available for purchase at the theater.
One of Joel and Ethan Coen’s most acclaimed films (they won Oscars for their screenplay and Frances McDormand got one for Best Actress). Cool, calm, collected (and pregnant!) policewoman Marge (McDormand) tracks the kidnappers of a used car salesman’s wife in North Dakota’s snow-covered wasteland. Salesman Jerry’s (William H. Macy) inept plot to get out of debt by staging the hoax unravels in gory fashion when his two bizarrely mismatched henchmen (Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare) have a falling-out. That hulking Stormare’s nonchalant, bloodcurdling use of a woodchipper at the climax emerges as both chilling and hilarious testifies to the Coens’ complete mastery of tone in the filmmaking process. Directed by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen. 1996. USA. 98 min.
About A Lot Can Happen in the Middle of Nowhere
A Lot Can Happen in the Middle of Nowhere: The Untold Story of the Making of Fargo is the true story of the Coen Brothers’ epic film of murder, mayhem, and malfeasance on the frozen landscapes of Minneapolis and North Dakota, offering an inside look into what Roger Ebert called “one of the best films I’ve ever seen.” Featuring a foreword by William H. Macy and twenty behind-the-scenes photographs, the book is a really super read for you or the Fargo lover in your life. Price: $22.
Todd Melby is a Minneapolis-based reporter and podcaster. More on Melby and his book here.
