Oh thanks for this Optimist, I had no idea when I would actually get to see this movie. Clearly it would have passed right under my nose if it was not for your post

If you enjoy the movie (as I did) look out for an opportunity to watch the TV Series, based loosely on the same subject matter. Unsure if MC will be screening this.

I was quite sceptical about the series, but absolutely loved it. Some of the best acting I've seen in a US series.

Glad it helped you Anelist

@Sandtonman, we had the series, I think last year, probably during one of your "migrations". It was very popular and discussed much on the Forum.
There was also another recent thread about the movie, most said they preferred it to the series but I have the opposite view.

Apparently a second series is being made, not sure what they could base that on but looking forward to it anyway.

Me too, Brian!
Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Bob Odenkirk (better call Saul ! ) and Allison Tolman were all absolutely excellent.
The plot was crazy, but I loved it; binge watched it over a week.

Cheers, K.

Yip, an amazing, crazy drama! Their straight faces and reactions to bizarre events is what sold me.
I almost feel like visiting Minnesota just to observe the "wildlife"

One thing I noticed was the differences between the two productions when it came to the "facts" they represented, especially regarding the chronology - for instance; when our lady cop was actually pregnant...

Maybe that's what determined preference for some, what they saw and believed first.
