‘Fargo’ Goes Back Up North on Blu-ray on May 12th

You can bring home one of Joel and Ethan Coen's most classic films in high-def this May. Fargo will be released on Blu-ray on May 12. No pricing details have been released, but you can take a look at the cover art and special features below. The film stars Frances McDormand, in her Oscar-winning role, William H. Macy, Peter Stormare and Steve Buscemi.

"This is a true story. The events depicted in this film took place in Minnesota in 1987. At the request of the survivors, the names have been changed. Out of respect for the dead, the rest has been told exactly as it occurred..."

The sixth collaboration of filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen, Fargo brings the Coen Brothers' unique sensibility to the frozen Minnesota winter, capturing the pathos of a kidnapping scheme gone wildly wrong. Its literate script, nuanced performances, and crisp direction have received the industry's highest honors.

Nominated* for seven Oscars and winner of two, this darkly amusing thriller combines a first-rate cast, "a dazzling mix of mirth and malice" (Rolling Stone) and a bizarre kidnapping plot that unravels the Midwest like never before. Starring Frances McDormand, William H. Macy and Steve Buscemi, Fargo is a brilliant tour de force from the creators of Raising Arizona and O Brother, Where Art Thou?
