Darkly comic, this Coen Brothers thriller created one of cinema's classic female characters: Marge Gunderson, a pregnant police chief investigating a series of homicides across the frozen Minnesota landscape. The plot revolves around a car salesman who hires criminals to kidnap his wife. But when the scheme goes sour, and wood chippers get involved, things get deadly serious. In 2006 the movie was put into the United States National Film Registry because the group thought it was culturally, historically, or aesthetically important enough to be recognized in their collection. It inspired a TV series of the same name.

Tony Reilly is getting old. With his wife dead and gone, he threatens to leave the family farm to an American nephew instead of his own son, Anthony. That is, until neighbor Rosemary steps in with a long-held family secret to change Anthony’s fate and her own. Set in the Irish countryside, this is the wistful story of two loners going on 40, eccentric souls, and, perhaps, just right for each other.

Dinner at Joe Mama’s.
