Synopsis: A Serious Man is the story of an ordinary man’s search for clarity in a universe where Jefferson Airplane is on the radio and “F-Troop” is on TV. It is 1967, and Larry Gopnik, a physics professor at a quiet midwestern university, has just been informed by his wife that she is leaving him. She has fallen in love with one of his more pompous colleagues, who seems to her a more substantial person than the feckless Larry. Larry’s unemployable brother is sleeping on the couch, his son has a discipline problem at Hebrew school, and his daughter is stealing money from his wallet in order to pay for a nose job. While his wife makes new domestic arrangements, and his brother becomes more of a burden, an anonymous hostile letter-writer is trying to sabotage Larry’s chances for tenure at the university. Can anyone help him cope with his afflictions and become a righteous person – a mensch – a serious man?

    This movie is going to be a hit! Because Richard Kind and Michael Stuhlbarg would be collabarating and it’s gonna be awesome. I heard that the Coen Brothers(the movie directors) is gonna be releasing a 5 minute preview of this story

    I prefer “The Man Who Wasn’t There” though the pace may have been rather slow, the irony and subtlety were class A. Also the correspondence with the invention of dry cleaning being worked into the storyline (kind of like Forrest Gump, but not with one fictitious happenstance piled on top of another).
