Synopsis:
Award-winning actress Renée Zellweger stars as Lucy Hill, a high-powered executive in love with her upscale Miami lifestyle. Seeking to snag a big promotion, Lucy agrees to move to a remote Minnesota town to oversee the restructuring of a blue-collar manufacturing plant. After enduring icy roads, freezing weather and a chilly reception from the locals, she soon warms up to the small town and its people – especially the town’s handsome union representative (Harry Connick, Jr.). What begins as a job assignment becomes the best thing ever to happen to her, in this heartwarming comedy that proves that the warmest people are often in the coldest places.

Outsider in a strange land - New in Town review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
28/03/2009

Renee plays a high-flying career executive, sent to a remote Minnesota factory to scale back production. The assignment comes as a culture shock, going from the warmth of Miami to the rural bitterly cold wilderness of redneck country. The locals are set in their ways and view her arrival with great suspicion, and rightly so. The set up reeks of Local Hero, albeit from a romantic lightweight stance, set in Fargo country. There are a few laughs as the predictable events unfold coming mainly from the workers rather than Renee or Harry. The musical accompaniment is lacklustre yet the actual film is a tad better touching on average.
