descriptionImaginatively exploring questions of faith, familial responsibility, delinquent behavior, dental phenomena, academia, mortality, and Judaism - and intersections thereof - A Serious Man is the new film from Academy Award-winning writers/directors Joel and Ethan Coen. A Serious Man is the story of an ordinary man's search for clarity in a universe in 1967. Physics professor Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlberg) has just been informed by his wife Judith (Sari Lennick) that she is leaving him. She has fallen in love with his more pompous acquaintance, Sy Ableman (Fred Melamed). Larry's unemployable brother Arthur (Richard Kind) is sleeping on the couch, his son Danny (Aaron Wolff) is a discipline problem and a shirker at Hebrew school, and his daughter Sarah (Jessica McManus) is filching money from his wallet in order to save up for a nose job.
An anonymous hostile letter-writer is trying to sabotage Larry's chances for tenure at the university. Also, a graduate student seems to be trying to bribe him for a passing grade while at the same time threatening to sue him for defamation. Plus, the beautiful woman next door torments him by sunbathing nude. Struggling for equilibrium, Larry seeks advice from three different rabbits. Can anyone help him cope with his afflictions and become a righteous person - a mensch - a serious man?
