Denby Swanson, is a dark comedy about two scorned lovers: Olive (from Texas) and Betty (from Kentucky) are here in Minnesota. In winter (it’s always winter). Not only have their hearts been frozen cold, they’ve been broken by a couple of rotten ex-boyfriends, and now they want their exes dead. So Olive and Betty hire the only kind of hit men you can find in Minnesota: really, really nice ones. Part Fargo and part romantic comedy, ‘The Norwegians’ skewers snowsuits, spurned lovers, Scandinavians, Texans, Italians, assassins, astrology, co-ops, hot dish, public breakups, public service, and how to hire a hit man. The kind of hit man you’d bring home to your mother. Depending on how you feel about your mother.” Directed by Matthew G. Anderson.
