Synopsis

Triple bill featuring three popular Coen Brothers movies. In 'Fargo' (1996), Minnesota car salesman Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy), deeply in debt, arranges for the kidnapping of his wife in order to obtain a sizeable ransom from her father, to pay off both his henchmen and his debts. However, all does not go according to plan. In 'Raising Arizona' (1987), an odd couple (Nicolas Cage and Holly Hunter), are desperate for a child but are both infertile, so they kidnap one of the famous Arizona quintuplets, believing that one wouldn't be missed. This proves not to be the case, and a frenetic chase ensues. In 'Miller's Crossing' (1990), crime boss Leo (Albert Finney) is asked to kill a chiseler who's moving in on someone else's action, only to discover that his target is the brother of his girlfriend. However, his girlfriend is two-timing Leo with his gambler friend Tom (Gabriel Byrne), who is also ordered to kill the chiseler after he joins a rival faction.
