A Serious Man

  • Dir: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen

  • USA / UK / France, 2009, English, 106mins, DCP

  • Cast: Michael Stuhlbarg, Richard Kind, Sari Lennick

A seemingly simple tale of domestic unrest escalates to almost biblical proportions in the Coens’ sardonic celebration of their Jewish heritage and its myriad playful proclivities. Recreating the 1960s Minnesotan suburbia of their youth, the film follows an unassuming physics teacher and family man, as a series of personal and professional crises threaten not only to destabilise his comfortable life, but to challenge his faith. Absurd, darkly comic and quietly profound, A Serious Man finds the Coens at their most honest and introspective yet.
