Thanks to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, I’m giving away a copy of the remastered Fargo Blu-ray on my movie blog. I saw the film many years ago, and I thought it was a great story with excellent acting. The movie stars William H. Macy and Frances McDormand. The Fargo Remastered Edition is available now on Blu-ray.
The “middle of nowhere” has never looked better in this new edition, now remastered for the best high-definition picture yet! In this film nominated for seven OSCARS, things go terribly awry when small-time Minnesota car salesman Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy) hires two thugs (Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare) to kidnap his wife so he can collect the ransom from his wealthy father-in-law. Once people start dying, the very chipper and very pregnant Police Chief Marge (Frances McDormand) takes the case. Will she stop at nothing until she gets her man? You betcha.
