In "Election," things get pretty tough for teacher Jim McAllister (Matthew Broderick) as he mentors a number of high school students, including Tracy Flick (Reese Witherspoon), as they prepare for high school elections.
That's the site of "Fargo." The city and the movie. A lot can happen in the middle of nowhere, you know. Like in this Coen brothers classic, in which a murder plot goes hopelessly awry and hilarity ensues.
