The Roxy Theater is proud to present Essential Cinema, a monthly series of the most iconic and important films the artform has to offer.

In 1987 Minnesota, car salesman Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy) has gotten himself into debt and is so desperate for money that he hires two thugs (Steve Buscemi), (Peter Stormare) to kidnap his own wife. Jerry will collect the ransom from her wealthy father (Harve Presnell), paying the thugs a small portion and keeping the rest to satisfy his debts. The scheme collapses, however, when the thugs shoot a state trooper.
