||Nebraska in the 1880s: bleak, lonely, and far from what you'd expect the Wild West to be. But for a naïve Swedish immigrant (David Warner), the frontier parlor of The Blue Hotel represents the quintessential Western fantasy. No one can convince The Swede that his dime-store notions about the West are foolish. He sees murderous intentions all around him, and in his terror he turns everybody against him. Inevitably the Swede attracts tragedy. However, who is responsible? The negative Swede? Or the cliquish hotel guests? Academy Award-winner Jan Kadar (The Shop on Main Street) directs this timely story of how society punishes outsiders for being different.
