Frances McDormand, Steve Buscemi, William H. Macy.
The plan of incompetent criminal Jerry (Macy) to ransom his wife goes horribly wrong when his henchmen bungle the kidnap and pregnant cop McDormand is called in to investigate. Boasting wonderful performances from McDormand and Macy (a veteran of Mamet plays), Fargo mixes humour, suspense and mystery with wry social observation. Beautifully written and, finally, very moving.
