Curzon Cinemas is proud to present a Special Preview of A Serious Man
A SERIOUS MAN Director: Joel and Ethan Coen. Starring: Michael Stuhlbarg, Sari Lennick, Richard Kind. US 2009. 105 mins. The story of one man’s life viciously unspooling, and imbued with their characteristic eye for character and humour, A Serious Man ranks with the Coen brother’s finest work. It’s 1967 and Larry Gopnik (Stuhlbarg, Afterschool), a physics professor at a quiet Midwestern university, has just been informed by his wife that she is leaving him for one of his colleagues. Larry’s unemployable brother Arthur (Kind) is sleeping on the couch, while his children eschew any sense of responsibility. With these trials of life, Larry seeks advice from three different rabbis but can anyone help him cope with his afflictions and become a righteous person – a mensch – a serious man?
