Fargo is about the investigation of a series of murders that take place after a car salesman hires two criminals to kidnap his wife, but everything doesn't go according to plan. Simple plot right? Wrong!
The Coen brothers (who directed, produced and wrote the film) told it in a rather unique manner, filled with characters that are rather quirky. The script (which won an Academy Award) was top notch as its segue from disturbing violence to hilarious scenes was superb.
