The Coen Brothers’ gloriously dark comedy masterpiece celebrates its tenth anniversary – a wonderful reason to screen it again and discuss its many merits.
Set in 1967, A Serious Man tells the story of Larry Gopnik (the wonderful Michael Stuhlbarg), a physics professor in a small Midwest town, who starts questioning his faith as he endures a series of personal and professional crises. In a portfolio filled with unforgettable films, A Serious Man still shines as the duo’s best.
