(1987, dirs., Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, 94 mins., PG-13)
After discovering that they cannot conceive a child, ex-con H.I. (Nicholas Cage) and ex-cop Edwina McDonald (Holly Hunter) decide to help themselves to one of the Arizona family’s newborn quintuplets. With the police, a bounty hunter and H.I’s prison buddies all on the search for the missing quint, the couple struggles to keep their secret and their sanity. Outrageous, wild and heart-warming, Raising Arizona is the second feature-length film by the Coens and certainly one of the funniest.
