The Coen Brothers: Uncertainty Principles
(R) USA/UK – 1 hr 38 min  
1996 · d. Joel Coen, Ethan Coen

Earning a Palme d’Or and two Oscars, Joel and Ethan Coen’s snowy film noir (film blanc?) established the duo as American filmmaking giants. Cash-strapped salesman Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy) has a plan—kidnap his own wife, pocket the ransom. When things go bad, very pregnant police chief Marge Gunderson (Frances McDormand) must crack the case.

The screening on Wednesday, October 11 is presented in conjunction with the film course Trafficking in the Absurd: The Coen Brothers’ Universe, taught by Paul Wright, Ph.D. On that date, seating for screening-only attendees will begin at 7:00 pm.
