A Serious Man. 2009. USA. Written and directed by Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. With Michael Stuhlbarg, Richard Kind, Fred Melamed. 35mm. 105 min.
Larry Gopnik looks like the placid kind of guy who leads a content existence. But no…Larry teaches physics and no one understands a thing he says, his wife is having an affair with his best friend, his kids are renegades, and his brother-in-law is crashing on the living room couch. These are the travails that go on inside the Gopnik house—to say nothing of the gun-toting next-door neighbor.
