An Academy Award Best Picture Nominee in 2009, “A Serious Man” is a brilliant comedy-drama that explores human nature and life’s meaning.
Larry Gopnik is a physics professor at a 1960s university, whose life is coming apart at the seams. His wife is leaving him, his jobless brother has moved in, and someone is trying to sabotage his chances for tenure.
With every aspect of his life unraveling, Gopnik seeks advice from 3 rabbis. The skewed misdirection and linguistic absurdities they offer in the guise of spiritual guidance and life direction mark a comic-tragic high point in the Coen Brothers’ oeuvre. This modern-day Book of Job is a moving tragedy and farce that has a wonderful surprise ending.
Free and open to all, light refreshments and coffee will be served.
