Fargo

Joel Coen, Ethan Coen (directors, screenwriters)
Frances McDormand, William H. Macy, Steve Buscemi, Peter Stormare (starring)

Stockholm: Pica Pressfoto, 1996. Vintage borderless satin finish color reference photograph of directors Joel and Ethan Coen on the set of the 1996 film. Printed snipe on the verso crediting photographer Fredrik Sandberg.

One of the best films of the 1990s, and perhaps the signature work of the Coens' long and uniformly excellent career. Winner of two Academy Awards, one for the Coens for Best Original Screenplay, and one for Frances McDormand, in a career defining role, for Best Actress. The Coens additionally won Best Director at Cannes, where they were also nominated for the Palme d'Or. Inspiration for the critically acclaimed 2014 anthology television series.

Set in Minnesota, and shot on location there and in North Dakota (but not actually in Fargo).

9.75 x 7 inches. Fine.
