Raising Arizona

Raising Arizona

The Coen Brothers tell the story of an absurd yet likable family with an unproductive couple as the focal point. The couple has gotten themselves into some trouble while kidnapping a baby and give Hollywood one of the most memorable chase scenes to date. With Nicolas Cage, Holly Hunter, John Goodman, Frances McDormand, and Trey Wilson.

“A terrifically original, eccentric screwball comedy, RAISING ARIZONA may not be the Coens’ most disciplined movie, but it’s one of their most purely entertaining.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

“Starting from a point of delirious excess, the film leaps into dark and virtually uncharted territory to soar like a comet.” (Time Out)
