Though I am a native Minnesotan, I had never seen this film until very recently. The city of Fargo is, of course, in North Dakota, but the majority of the action in this Coen Brothers classic takes place in Minnesota. Frances McDormand portrays the unforgettable Marge Gunderson, a pregnant police chief investigating a simple crime gone wrong. William H. Macy's desperate attempts to gain a whole lot of capital go deadly in this unusual adventure. I will not give anything away, but I will say that the accents are slightly exaggerated in my opinion. Otherwise, a great film overall.
