(Joel Coen, 1996).
Coen’s robust, droll, and moving satire of the American Middle West set in snowy Minnesota landscapes features a memorable performance by Frances McDormand as good-hearted, slow-talkin’ pregnant police chief Marge Gundersen investigating a kidnap scene. She’s the sort of character we usually never see in a crime saga.
