A delightful film noir in the traditions of Fargo and Forest Gump...
Albert is special. He can hear the fish talking under the ice. That's his secret to being a champion ice fisherman. He's well into his twenties, but Mom still accompanies him to tournaments, where he has won hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize money.
When street smart Tuey and her hypochondriac teenaged brother Stan drift into Albert's quaint Milwaukee suburbs, they stumble on an opportunity to fill their empty pockets. Smooth-talking travelling salesman Jerry James has also just sleazed into town.
Everyone is after wide-eyed Albert's hidden fortune. But everyone has underestimated Albert. He's a lot smarter than everyone thinks. At least he knows that Milwaukee isn't in Minnesota.
Milwaukee, Minnesota is released by Tartan Films on December 3rd.
