Raising Arizona

Slick, stylish, entertaining and an unpredictable film from the Coen brothers. Nicholas Cage, a criminal, and Holly Hunter, a cop, get married. Once this couple discovers that they can't physically have a baby and Cage (being a criminal) they're not allowed to adopt, so they do the next best thing: they steal one! A well-written, well-directed, well-acted and a delicious comedy that is highly strange and unique. Many people will like it but it's not for everybody's tastes.
