A Serious Man (R)

The Coen brothers take their dark humor to fresh turf with the story of one man’s quest to become a serious man. When a physics professor sees his life unraveling (his wife is ditching him, his deadbeat brother won’t get off his couch — and that’s just for starters), he consults three rabbis for help. Their answers are far from straightforward, and propel him to explore faith, bad behavior, death and life. (Michael Stuhlbarg [Larry Gopnik], Sari Lennick [Judith Gopnik])
