Fargo - DVD
Jerry Lundegaard is a car salesman in Minneapolis who has gotten himself into serious debt and is so desperate for money that he hires two thugs to kidnap his own wife. Jerry blackmails his father-in-law with hopes that he'll pay the ransom and in turn, pay the thugs a small portion, keeping the rest to satisfy his debts. His whole scheme collapses when the thugs shoot a state trooper and two innocent bystanders in rural Minnesota, drawing a very pregnant local Police Chief, Marge Gunderson (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand), into her first homicide investigation. After several twists and turns, Chief Gunderson draws closer to Lundegaard as she unravels this truly unfortunate and ironic situation.
