Product Description
Nominated* for seven Oscars(r) and winner of two, this darkly amusing thriller combines a first-rate cast, "a dazzling mix of mirth and malice" (Rolling Stone) and a bizarre kidnapping plot that unravels the Midwest like never before. Starring Frances McDormand, William H. Macy and Steve Buscemi, Fargo is a brilliant tour de force from the creators of Raising Arizonaand O Brother, Where Art Thou? *1996: Best Picture, Director, Actress (McDormand, won), Supporting Actor (Macy), Original Screenplay (won), Cinematography, Editing

Leave it to the wildly inventive Coen brothers (Joel directs, Ethan produces, they both write) to concoct a fiendishly clever kidnap caper that's simultaneously a comedy of errors, a Midwestern satire, a taut suspense thriller, and a violent tale of criminal misfortune. It all begins when a hapless car salesman (played to perfection by William H. Macy) ineptly orchestrates the kidnapping of his own wife. The plan goes horribly awry in the hands of bumbling bad guys Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare (one of them being described by a local girl as "kinda funny lookin'" and "not circumcised"), and the pregnant sheriff of Brainerd, Minnesota, (played exquisitely by Frances McDormand in an Oscar-winning role) is suddenly faced with a case of multiple murders. Her investigation is laced with offbeat observations about life in the rural hinterland of Minnesota and North Dakota, and Fargo embraces its local yokels with affectionate humor. At times shocking and hilarious, Fargo is utterly unique and distinctly American, bearing the unmistakable stamp of its inspired creators. --Jeff Shannon

Theater review: Florida-style romance and tragedy, reality and dreams at Jungle Theater - TwinCities.com-Pioneer Press

It happened during a surprising, erotic moment in the first act and it felt like an appropriate response to the play, which is set during a time of heat-ravaged romantic betrayals in 1920s Florida. “Anna,” which won Cuban-American playwright Nilo Cruz the Pulitzer Prize in 2003, is an ethereal play, one that works by suggestion and misdirection, which means that many of its events seem to come out of nowhere and, when they do, they could... As the play opens, a trio of women — Ofelia and her daughters, married Conchita (quiet, steely Nora Montanez) and adventure-starved Marela — are awaiting the arrival of Juan Julian, a lector whose job it will be to read to the women as they work... Soon, Juan Julian commences reading Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina” so eloquently that the workers — also including Conchita’s faithless husband — begin to see their own lives reflected in Tolstoy’s tales of romantic longing and betrayal. Given that Anna Karenina’s life ended in suicide and one character in the play, Ofelia, shares a name with Shakespeare’s most famous suicide, all signs point to tragedy. Larissa Kokernot’s poetic production situates the play somewhere between reality and dreams and, as a result, anything seems possible. When Juan Julian reads Tolstoy’s gorgeous words to the factory workers, the walls of the factory, which are constructed of the pages of books, fly open to reveal the sky (Andrea Heilman’s set is a looker). But is the outside world the dream or is it the cramped walls of the factory, within which it sometimes seems their whole lives take place. “Anna in the Tropics” asks lots of questions about love, beauty and art and you should be ready for it not to answer all of them. The play’s characters keep secrets from each other and, tantalizingly, from us. Major events happen off-stage or are never explained, which could be frustrating or could just be a reflection of the fact that, in all our lives, things happen and... The heat, for one thing, is such a major player — one character praises Juan Julian’s decision to read a winter book in the dead of summer — but we don’t get much of a sense of that heat. ) And Cristina Florencia Castro’s performance mercurial performance as Marela is lovely but is Marela supposed to be a teenager. The parallels between “Anna Karenina” and “Anna in the Tropics” keep surprising us all the way until the novel. Source: www.twincities.com
