The Coen Brothers' THE BIG LEBOWSKI & The Coen Brothers' FARGO
20th Anniversary Screening The Coen Brothers' THE BIG LEBOWSKI (R, 1998, 119 min)
The Big Lebowski is a hilariously quirky dramedy about bowling, a severed toe, White Russians and a guy named....The Dude. Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski doesn't want any drama in his life...heck, he can't even be bothered with a job. But he must embark on a quest with his bowling buddies after his rug is destroyed in a twisted case of mistaken identity. Starring Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi, Philip Seymour Hoffman and John Turturro, experience the cultural phenomenon of The Dude in the #1 cult film of all time!
The Coen Brothers' FARGO (R, 1996, 98 min)
It all begins when a hapless care salesman (William H. Macy) ineptly orchestrates the kidnapping of his own wife. The plan goes horribly awry in the hands of bumbling bad guys, and the pregnant sheriff of Brainerd, Minnesota, (Frances McDormand in an Oscar-winning role) is suddenly faced with a case of multiple murders. Her investigation is laced with offbeat observations about life in the rural hinterland of Minnesota and North Dakota, and Fargo embraces its local yokels with affectionate humor. At times shocking and hilarious, Fargo is utterly unique and distinctly American, bearing the unmistakable stamp of its inspired creators.
