Description:

What defines success? For Miami executive Lucy Hill (Renee Zellweger), it's climbing the corporate ladder, so when her company needs someone to automate and reconfigure a food plant in a rural town in Minnesota, Lucy volunteers figuring the temporary move will lead to a big promotion. Intent on sweeping into town, mechanizing the factory, and reducing the staff by 50 percent, Lucy has no intention of letting anyone or anything stand in her way. Disdain doesn't begin to describe what Lucy feels about the small-town residents and their obsession with scrapbooking, propensity to bring up Jesus in casual conversation, and outdated visions of what comprises an appropriate female role model. Union leader Ted (Harry Connick Jr.), plant manager Stu (J. K. Simmons), and secretary Blanche (Siobhan Fallon) bear the brunt of Lucy's scorn, but even as she focuses on carrying out her business agenda, Lucy inexplicably finds herself drawn to those same inhabitants. As she begins to reexamine what's truly important in her life, personal relationships unexpectedly begin to vie with business success for a spot at the top of her priority list and she begins to consider whether or not these disparate ambitions must by necessity be mutually exclusive of one another. Reminiscent of Fargo with its satiric portrait of simple Mid-Western country folk, New in Town is an engaging film about ambition, self-discovery, and love that offers plenty of laughs, life lessons, and an opportunity for personal reflection. --Tami Horiuchi
