Indicative to the career that would follow, the Coen brothers followed their breakthrough thriller Blood Simple with a fantastical comedy starring Nicolas Cage and Holly Hunter. When ex-con McDunnough and ex-cop Edwina find out that they are unable to conceive, they decide to kidnap one of the quintuplets of a renowned furniture tycoon. Despite attempts to keep their crime a secret, they soon find themselves on the run and hunted by a Harley-riding mercenary. A clever mix of slapstick, surreal fantasy and homespun family values, Raising Arizona is a Coen film like no other.
