The Rio Theatre’s Friday Late Night Movie series continues on January 10 with a winter-y classic from directors Joel and Ethan Cohen, FARGO.

Jerry, a small-town Minnesota car salesman is bursting at the seams with debt… but he’s got a plan. He’s going to hire two thugs to kidnap his wife in a scheme to collect a hefty ransom from his wealthy father-in-law. It’s going to be a snap and nobody’s going to get hurt… until people start dying. Enter Police Chief Marge, a coffee-drinking, parka-wearing – and extremely pregnant – investigator who’ll stop at nothing to get her man. And if you think her small-time investigative skills will give the crooks a run for their ransom… you betcha! Starring Frances McDormand (in her Oscar-winning role, yaaaah), Steve Buscemi, William H. Macy,

“The Coen Brothers are among the most able practitioners in America and this film is one of their best attempts to turn a familiar genre — the True Crime drama — into something miles away from the ordinary.” (The Guardian)
