Why so serious?

On Friday, November 6, we unveil the new film from the brothers Cohen (Fargo, No Country for Old Men, Burn After Reading), the critically acclaimed A Serious Man.

"This is by far the most personal and revealing film the Coens have ever made, which might not seem like saying much," writes Andrew O'Hehir. "They're known for creating mannered, sardonic fictional worlds shaped as much (or more) by film history as by real life. But in recapturing the vanished realm where they grew up - a self-enclosed world of Midwestern Jewish suburbia - the Coens have crafted perhaps their most original work, one that presents itself, early on, as middleweight middle-American domestic comedy before revealing a strange and secret power that's closer to magic or myth."
